In 2021, the concept of the Metaverse exploded with the help of major technology companies. Then, the governments of developed countries such as Japan and South Korea successively issued detailed implementation rules for the construction of the Metaverse, intending to establish a new type of national advantage.

The development of Metaverse in China is inseparable from the support of policies. Whether it is from the recent local government work reports or industrial planning, the wrestling of various regions in my country on the new track of the "Metaverse" has begun.

"Yangtze River Delta" preemptive layout

At the end of the year and the beginning of the year, many cities across the country have successively expressed their positions on the layout of the Metaverse Track, among which the "rush run" action in the "Yangtze River Delta" area is the most eye-catching.

In November 2021, the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Economy and Information Technology will organize a "Metaverse" industry development symposium. At the end of December, Hangzhou announced the establishment of the Metaverse Special Committee. The "Guiding Opinions on the Construction of Future Industry Pilot Zones in Zhejiang Province" issued a few days ago further clarified that the construction of artificial intelligence, blockchain, third-generation semiconductors, quantum information, aerospace integration, advanced equipment manufacturing, and metaverse fields will be built. Focus on the future industrial development system.

Since December 2021, Shanghai's moves to deploy the "first move" in the Metaverse have become more frequent. On December 21, the Economic Work Conference of the Shanghai Municipal Party Committee proposed: "Guide enterprises to step up research on important platforms for the interaction between the virtual world and the real society in the future, and deploy in a timely manner." On December 30, the "14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of Shanghai's Electronic Information Industry" was released, which proposed to strengthen the forward-looking research and development of the underlying core technology basic capabilities of the Metaverse, and promote the deepening of perception and interaction. New terminal development and systematic virtual content construction to explore industry applications. This is also the first time that Metaverse has been written into the local "14th Five-Year Plan" industrial plan.

In the special plan for the electronic information manufacturing industry issued at the same time, Shanghai has further refined the scope of promoting the application of Metaverse, and clearly supports the research on image engines, blockchain and other technologies that meet the requirements of Metaverse; encourages Metaverse in public services, Applications in business office, social entertainment and other fields.

Jiangsu is also following the pace. On January 5, Binhu District, Wuxi City issued the "Taihu Bay Science and Technology Innovation Belt Leading Area Metaverse Ecological Industry Development Plan", which pointed out that it is necessary to focus on the integration of application leading and scene driving, and promote the development of Metaverse technology in Metaverse. In-depth application in multiple fields; promote the coordinated development of all upstream and downstream links and entities in the Metaverse industry, and accelerate the integrated and innovative development of the Metaverse and integrated circuits, blockchain, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and other technologies.

It is reported that in the next stage, Binhu District of Wuxi City will build a Metaverse Core Industrial Zone, a Metaverse Innovation Incubation Park, and a Metaverse Advanced Intelligent Manufacturing Land to improve the quality and efficiency of resource allocation and build a Metaverse spatial layout. By 2025, Binhu District of Wuxi City will basically form a Metaverse industrial ecology with technology leadership, enterprise agglomeration, demonstration applications, and complete standards through the agglomeration and development of the Metaverse ecological industry, and become a model for the development of the domestic Metaverse industry.

"Metaverse" proposals appear in the two sessions in many places

"Metaverse" not only frequently appears in the industrial development plans of many places across the country, but has also become a hot word in the "two sessions" held in various places recently.

At the recently concluded two sessions in Beijing, "Metaverse" also appeared in the proposals of several deputies to the National People's Congress and members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Sun Taoran, member of the Beijing Municipal Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and chairman of Lakala Payment Co., Ltd., brought two proposals related to the "Metaverse". " and "Suggestions on Building Shougang Park into a Pilot Industrial Park for the Development of "Metaverse" in Beijing"; Li Jun, member of the Beijing Municipal Political Consultative Conference and general manager of Leyard Optoelectronics Co., Ltd. To promote the technical reserves of the "metaverse", it is also necessary to seize the opportunity of this new technology industry to update and iterate. He suggested that the government should lead the establishment of a special class, organize relevant scientific research institutes and industrial units to jointly form a "Metaverse" development alliance, and at the same time establish a "Metaverse" technology research center under the alliance.

On January 10th and 11th, Hefei and Wuhan held the National People's Congress successively, and at the same time, the Metaverse was written into the "Government Work Report". The "Government Work Report" released by Hefei City on January 11 pointed out that in the next five years, Hefei will look forward to laying out future industries, aiming at cutting-edge fields such as the Metaverse, superconducting technology, and precision medicine, and creating a group of leading enterprises, cutting-edge technologies, high-end industries. products, using future industries to win the future of the city; Wuhan City proposed in the "Government Work Report" to accelerate the expansion of the digital industry, promote the integration of the Metaverse, big data, cloud computing, blockchain, etc. with the real economy, and build a new generation of national artificial intelligence. Intelligent innovation and development pilot area.

"The successive positive statements of local governments reflect the importance they attach to cutting-edge fields. Metaverse is not a single technology, but multiple technologies, which represent a social change." Expert from Whale Platform Think Tank, Zhongguancun Big Data Industry Alliance Secretary-General Zhao Guodong said, "This is also an opportunity for industrial transformation. The process of promoting the development of the Metaverse has a huge impact on the upgrading of the local economic structure."

The implementation of the policy brings a good start for the Metaverse to empower the real economy

All countries with a keen sense of technology have launched the dynamic layout and development rules of the metaverse-related fields.

In May 2021, the Ministry of Science, Technology, Information and Communications of the Republic of Korea initiated the establishment of the "Metaverse Alliance", which gathers more than 200 local Korean companies and institutions, including Hyundai and SK Group. Ecosystem, enabling an open metaverse platform in multiple realms, both real and virtual. In November, the Seoul Metropolitan Government announced the "Metaverse Seoul Advancement Basic Plan" to 2026, including the medium and long-term direction and strategy of the Metaverse policy, and the establishment of the Metaverse platform.

Japan is no exception. In July 2021, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan released the "Investigation Report on the Future Possibilities and Issues of the Virtual Space Industry", which defines the metaverse as "in a specific virtual space, producers in various fields provide consumers with various services and content”. The report believes that the government should focus on preventing and solving legal problems in "virtual space", and improve the applicable legal provisions for transnational and cross-platform business; the government should formulate industry standards and guidelines with industry insiders, and export such norms to the world.

Regarding the application of the metaverse, the soil and paths at home and abroad are different. Industry experts told reporters that the development of Metaverse in China is inseparable from the support of policies.

Wang Peng, associate professor of Renmin University of China, told reporters that in the future, Metaverse will be applied in real economic scenarios such as education, medical care, and government services. development, forming a virtuous circle.

The development of the Metaverse is not about "removing the real to the virtual", but realizing the deep integration of the digital economy and the real economy, so as to effectively empower the real economy to upgrade in an all-round way, so that all walks of life can find a "second growth curve".

According to data from the Tianyancha APP, as of December 31, 2021, there have been over 12,000 trademark applications in China with "Metaverse" in their names, and more than 1,700 trademark applications with "Meta" and "METAVERSE" in their names. pieces, more than 1000 pieces. In addition to Alibaba, Tencent, NetEase, Baidu and other Internet giants, relevant trademark applicants also include companies in more industries such as car companies, home appliance companies, and catering companies.

"Metaverse may become the next new growth point of the digital economy," said Zheng Dingding, president of the Shenzhen Information Service Industry Blockchain Association. my country's major cities are participating in the Metaverse track, and the gaps in the Metaverse standard specification and regulatory system are expected to be supplemented, accelerating the construction of Metaverse application scenarios, and driving the development of related industries such as VR, AR, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and blockchain. developing.
