Post Time: 2019-12-05

       On November 23, a seminar on the construction of 5G industrial clusters in the Yangtze River Delta was held in the Jinyi New Urban District. The theme of the event was “smart, interconnected, and infinite possibilities for the future.” Entrepreneurs based in the Yangtze River Delta region gathered in Jinhua to discuss the construction of the world's leading 5G industrial cluster.

       Chen Xiao, member of the Standing Committee of the Municipal Party Committee and executive deputy mayor, and Zhang Xinyu, member of the leading Party group of the municipal government, secretary of the Party Working Committee, and director of the Management Committee of the Jinhua Emerging Industries Cluster, attended the meeting.

       The digital economy is a crucial aspect for the high-quality development of the Yangtze River Delta. Jinhua, an integrated city in the developmental region of the Yangtze River Delta, is a major center for digital economy. In fact, digital economy is the primary industry here. As a crucial node on the 8x8 Fiber Optic Cable Network1 and the second largest information port in Zhejiang, Jinhua registers two national first-level and ten national second-level fiber optic cable networks and hosts China Telecom Cloud Computing Center and China Mobile Information and Communication Industrial Park. The 5G industry is dramatically contributing to the acceleration of the reshaping of the city, including 5G commercial buildings, 5G smart first aid, and 5G workshops.

        The digital economy of the Jinyi New Urban District has a good foundation and rapid development, and the information industry is accelerating its development, aiming to achieve the goal of realizing a 100-billion RMB information industry cluster. This year, the Longxin Smart Industrial Park settled. At present, over 86 hectares of smart industrial parks have begun pre-construction, and informatics systems are scheduled to go online by the end of December.

       Next, the New District will firmly grasp the opportunities for innovation and development of the 5G industry, introduce a number of 5G industrial projects, promote the integration between 5G technology and real economy, and establish a 5G industrial base in mid-Zhejiang.

  1. The 8x8 Fiber Optic Cable Network is composed of 48 cables lines covering all provincial capital cities and 70% of prefectures or cities in China. China decided to construct the optical cable network at the beginning of the 1990s in order to overhaul China's backward long-distance communications.
