China is one of the foremost nations embracing a fully connected society. In many major Chinese cities, sensor-filled machines that accept digital payments and support public data-collection are commonplace. Such technologies are found in supermarkets, malls, and even on sidewalks — Chinese panhandlers have notably used the WeChat platform to collect donations from passersby. Already, China’s mobile payments market is nearly 50 times that of the U.S.’s.

China, which already has one of the world’s most globally competitive economies, may experience explosive economic boosts from emerging digital innovations. For example, China currently accounts for 42 percent of the global e-commerce market. The country is also home to one-third of the world’s most successful tech startups.
