More than 144 million people in China are now online, according to figures released Thursday by Vice Minister of Information Industry Xi Guohua. State media said the number is expected to jump to 200 million by 2010 with average annual growth of 8%. Some 97 million people currently use broadband services. A large proportion of this 144 million are young people, mostly teenagers, a fact that led Xi to call for healthy content to be provided and a crackdown on internet pornography. In a separate announcement, Bo Fusuo, an official in charge of economic operation at the Ministry of Information Industry, said the information industry would likely have US$1.3 trillion in revenue by 2010 with average annual growth of 17.6%.
