Cooperate with Internet companies
China Unicom has actively explored cooperation with Internet companies, and has signed strategic cooperation agreements with Tencent, Baidu and Alibaba respectively. Each party can exploit its technology, resources and ecosystem advantages in the Internet industry, seize opportunities in the new round of technology revolution, and deepen cooperation to achieve win-win development on the basis of “mutual sharing of capacity, joint expansion and joint innovation”. The parties also carry out in-depth cooperation in basic telecommunication service, mobile Internet and industrial Internet, so as to accelerate supply-side structural reform for mobile Internet.
In 2016, China Unicom, in cooperation with other parties, launched DiDi King Card, Tencent King Card and Ant Treasure Card, which gained favourable social responses.
