Yangpu lays out digital action plan

SHANGHAI’S Yangpu District government yesterday released an action plan as part of the district’s ambition to become a hub for digital infrastructure and the online economy.

The strategy focuses on 11 key areas, including 5G and the BeiDou navigation system, unmanned transport and new-energy vehicles as well as online medical and new retail.

“By 2022, Yangpu aims to create a new economy park, 10 demonstration projects, and foster over 100 leading tech firms and 10,000 digitalized companies with a total in­vestment of 100 billion yuan (US$14.38 billion),” said Miao Rongbin, director of the dis­trict’s development and reform commission.

New infrastructure, such as 5G base stations and charg­ing stations for electric cars, are expected to help restore the economy after the pan­demic as well as drive future development, according to Yangpu’s science commission.

The action plan features stronger support for scientific research centers.

Databases and technologi­cal centers will be established to include data on integrated circuits, biopharmaceuticals, intelligent manufacturing, new materials, new-energy cars and big data. Based on artificial intelligence, more smart self-service machines will be launched in local communities.

Yangpu neighborhoods are being encouraged to build ad­ditional private and shared charging poles. Several demon­stration neighborhoods will be developed across the district.

The city’s first model charging station for NEVs was launched at the Changyang Campus, an innovation park transformed from a historic cotton mill an now boasting many AI and ro­botic technologies.

The district also plans to build three Internet hospitals and five digitalized schools by 2022.

Other key sectors and busi­nesses include remote offices, education and medical services, online financial services, smart transport, online research and design as well as new retail.
