BEIJING - China's spending on information technology (IT) will grow 10 percent year on year to reach over 2.21 trillion yuan (about $346.1 billion) in 2021, according to an industrial report.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic has propelled the upgrade of the internet economy and promoted the development of tele-medicare and tele-education in the country, a report released by global market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) said.

The Chinese government started implementing its 14th Five-Year Plan this year, which will drive growth in its spending on IT in the coming years, the IDC said.
