The Central Leading Group for Internet Security and Informatization (Chinese: 中央网络安全和信息化领导小组; pinyin: Zhōngyāng wǎngluò ānquán hé xìnxī huà lǐngdǎo xiǎozǔ) is a policy formulation and implementation body set up under the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China for the purpose of managing internet-related issues. This is believed to include the expansion of online services, internet security concerns, as well as broad jurisdiction over policies on internet censorship.
The decision to establish the group was announced at the 3rd Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee in November 2013, but did not hold its first full meeting until February 2014.[1]
The group is also known as the Cyberspace Affairs Leading Group. The Cyberspace Administration of China reports to the group and acts as its executive arm. The Leading Group was not a wholly new created entity, since it was primarily a reconstitution of the Leading Group for National Informatization, with a similar membership composition.[2]
