Information technology has become the main pillar of economic development. In terms of the GDP development, information industry comes first. What’s more, telecommunication has also become one of main methods to increase the efficiency of production and to strengthen competitive power at home, even in the world.

The development of infrastructure serves to the development of information technology. Above all, we cannot emphasize the importance of infrastructure improvement in the fields of education and science too much. For example, in China redistribution of state revenue and national resources is going on, which makes a benefit to the progress of science and education.

During the struggle for international top ranking, it is also highly required to develop information technology and to build information society. Moreover, the development level of information infrastructure and information technology is one of the most important evaluation indicators.

Information society make it possible for every company, department and unit of society to access to information sources and share their achievements on internet. It should be noted that the exchanging process of information must be guaranteed by laws and regulations in order to keep the technical secret of own country, company and organizations. Therefore, new criteria should be established to assess the development level of society.

Using computers, mobile phones as well as immobile phones, a large number of people all over the world can get access to the internet. Due to technology integration and convergence, such as telecommuting computer, audio-visual technology etc., uniform integrated informational systems have been far and wide applied and popularized in every aspect of society.

In information society, activities of economy and business are being carried out with the help of information communicative mediums. By utilizing high-technology, virtual economic and financial systems can be established. Moreover, an interrelation exists between the virtual economic and financial systems and the actual-physical economic as well as financial systems, namely, an interactive relation.
