WUZHEN, Zhejiang, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- The tucked-away river town of Wuzhen may not be an obvious site for the World Internet Conference, but the annual event shows that Internet connection is more important to modern life than location.
This year's conference, the fourth ever, featured a vision for the future of the east China town's century-old wooden houses: retrofitting with "smart home" systems that bring breakfast first thing in the morning and hail driverless cars to take residents to work after the morning meal.
Mobile payment, facial recognition William Karlsson Jersey , shared bikes and omnipresent wifi have become a part of everyday life for residents in Wuzhen, which makes Luigi Gambardella, president of ChinaEU, a Brussels-based association that promotes communication between China and Europe, wonder whether the technology can be copied in less developed regions.
World Bank statistics show that even among the poorest 20 percent of the world's population, nearly 70 percent have cellphones, meaning more households have access to the digital devices than to clean water David Perron Jersey , improved toilets or electricity.
In China, there are more than eight million online shops on Alibaba's e-commerce platform, 62 percent of which are small shops. The percentage of female shop owners is growing, and the disabled already account for one percent of e-shop owners.
Other corners of the world have also benefited from the "digital dividend."
In Kenya, remittance costs have been reduced by over 90 percent for migrant workers who send money back to their families in rural areas, thanks to digital payment systems. In India, the Aadhar biometric ID system has served more than one billion Luca Sbisa Jersey , especially poor people, while preventing corruption and waste, saving the government billions of dollars every year.
However, there are still a lot of people who are not able to benefit from the digital revolution.
Managing Director and World Bank Group Chief Administrative Officer, Shaolin Yang said there are six billion people without access to high-speed internet, and four billion of them don't have access to the internet at all.
"It is why here at this year's conference we must discuss how to bridge the digital divide," said Gambardella Oscar Dansk Jersey , who said China is capable of being a leader in this endeavor.
China leads the world in access to fiber optic broadband networks and boasts the largest 4G network. Its internet penetration has topped 72.5 percent.
Gambardella thinks that the Chinese government has efficient administration that leads to timely decision making.
"In China, the government-led deployment of fiber-optic networks in rural areas is a best practice in the digital economy and should be introduced to other countries," he said. "The conference is a perfect platform for China to share its experience in bridging the digital divide."
In Mexico, the government is leading an internet reform that aims to reduce the costs for mobile communication and prices of information services.
"Our internet access rate has grown to 20 percent. In the meantime, 61 percent of mobile users have access to broadband, which was only 6 percent in 2011," said Miguel Angel Margain Oscar Lindberg Jersey , Director General of the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property.
The unprecedented information revolution will be more meaningful when all people in the world can benefit from it, Yang added.

Paul Pierce stared straight ahead, an occasional smile or laugh interrupting the otherwise distant look on his face.
Now a Net, it's clear he's still getting over not being a Celtic.
''It's tough when you've been in a situation like me for 15 years,'' Pierce said.
But he's getting used to it, and he and Kevin Garnett are ready to make the most of their new surroundings.
Traded from Boston to Brooklyn, the duo was introduced along with Jason Terry on Thursday at a news conference at Barclays Center Cody Eakin Jersey , their new home.
Pierce said it was difficult to leave the city where he'd spent his entire career. He appeared dazed at times while listening to questions and answers, even having to ask for one to be repeated while trying to fight his way out of a fog.
''You saw the trade and it's like, 'OK, there's a trade.' But for me to actually be here now, looking for a place to live, being in this arena, trying to get to know my way around the city Reilly Smith Jersey , it's really starting to sink in now that it's become real,'' Pierce said.
''I'm no longer a Boston Celtic, I'm a Brooklyn Net and that's what it is right now,'' he continued. ''It's a business. At some point we all have to move on and I'm here to try to create some kind of legacy here in Brooklyn.''
The crowd applauded, appearing more excited about having Pierce in Brooklyn than he was about being here. That's understandable given his history in Boston, where he is the Celtics' No. 2 career scorer and was the NBA Finals MVP when they won the last of their NBA-high 17 championships.
''Hell yeah, he's been with Boston his whole life Brendan Leipsic Jersey ,'' Garnett said. ''You've been in a system, been in a city, especially it's the Celtics. Yeah, it's very difficult.''
But Pierce realized it would be coming, saying he thought ''the writing was on.
