The Decision gives direction and framework of the second reform in six fields: economy, politics, culture, society, ecology and national defense.

Along with deepening of reform and increase of economic aggregate and ICT total market, by 2020, ICT vendors will face changes in economic environment, technical trends, ecosystem and user demands. They would be learning how to cope with the four changes to realize transformation and revolution, an issue all ICT vendors must expect to be confronted with.
