The overall plan for the construction of the experimental zone in Guangzhou for artificial intelligence (AI) and digital economy was launched by the Guangdong Provincial Development and Reform Commission on Feb 21.
The Yuzhu area in Guangzhou's Huangpu district has been covered in the plan, and will be built into the integrated development area for AI and digital economy at the north coast of the Pearl River along with Guangzhou International Financial City.
The Yuzhu area will set up the new generation of international information infrastructure, such as industrial internet identity parsing top-level nodes, to bolster the deep integration of the real economy with new technologies such as AI, 5G, and blockchain.
It is expected that the Yuzhu area will become a demonstration area featuring blockchain.
In addition, the Yuzhu area will make full use of the local Huangpu Port to push forward the integrated development of shipping, trade, and digital economy.
