As the digital economy gathers pace, in part driven by China’s "Internet Plus" development strategy, Tencent is co-creating an ecosystem through strategic collaboration with our partners and the development of open platforms.


These partnerships foster the development of cutting-edge technologies, including cloud computing, big data, and artificial intelligence (AI).


Individuals, businesses and entire industries across all sectors of our economy are already realizing the benefits of Tencent’s Open Ecosystem, which is helping millions of entrepreneurs and their employees establish new businesses and create new jobs.


The valuation of these ventures significantly exceeds 100 billion yuan (over US$14.5 billion).


Another of Tencent’s objectives is to use technology to accelerate the development of the public good, part of its goal to become the world’s “most respected internet enterprise”.


In 2007, Tencent launched the Tencent Foundation, the first charitable foundation by an internet enterprise in China. The foundation is devoted to creating a system that empowers citizens to engage in charitable activities.


Tencent Foundation launched in 2015 the first online charity event in China, “99 Charity Day”. This campaign connects non-profit organizations, netizens, and enterprises, to create a thriving philanthropic ecosystem.


We are proud to deploy our world-class technological capabilities and services to help promote the long-term growth and development of society.
