Ma Huateng, NPC deputy, chairman and CEO of Tencent. This year, Ma brought several suggestions to the top legislature, covering integration of digital technology and the real economy, rural revitalization, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and low-carbon development.

At present, integration of digital technology and the real economy is in a critical period of systematization and overall integration, Ma said.

In terms of technology, industry and society, digital technology keeps its own innovation and integration with traditional industries, becoming a boost for the real economy's digital transformation. Meanwhile, modern social governance and digital public services also provide abundant application scenarios and opportunities for digital technology.

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has a solid foundation in the marine industry, offering unique advantages in developing coastal systems for "blue carbon", or carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems, Ma added.

In his proposal, Li said the nation should guide and support local governments to unveil policies to allow driverless vehicles without any safety supervisor to run on roads and build pilot zones for manned operation of completely autonomous driving vehicles.

Li also suggested speeding up the revision and promulgation of China's road traffic safety law to lay a legal foundation for large-scale commercialization of autonomous driving vehicles and unmanned vehicles.

In addition, Li said it was necessary to build intelligent transport infrastructure in advance, give full play to the strengths of the 5G network in remote control and push for an intelligent transformation of the auto industry.

Li also proposed accelerating development of "green AI", using green electricity and algorithms to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions from data centers.
