China's Ministry of Information Industry (MII) has decided to promote six major information technology projects during the "Eleventh Five-year Plan". The projects, which include RFID and a Digital Home Plan, were announced at the National Information Technology Application Work Conference 2005 held in Chongqing.
The six major IT projects cover such sectors as agriculture, industry, online security, household information construction, emergency service systems in cities and comprehensive management information systems based on RFID.
In particular, the digital home entertainment project includes integrating electronic home appliances like televisions, computers and mobile phones with water, gas and power supply agencies to provide pre-warning systems.
The Plan also calls for the development of an anti-fatigue software system that will ensure youth do not spend too much time playing online games.
