On June 5 this year, Ningbo released its action plan for promoting new 
infrastructure construction during the 2020-2022 period, pointing out that it 
would use cloud computing, big data, Internet of Things, 5G, artificial 
intelligence, and blockchain technologies in such areas as governance, 
healthcare, industrial economy to make urban governance and public services 
smarter.

The coastal city initiated a city brain project with investment 
(https://en.imsilkroad.com/investment/index.html) of 460 million yuan on August 
8. Prioritizing the digitalization of government services, law enforcement 
supervision, social governance, services for improving people's wellbeing, the 
project is regarded as the core infrastructure of digital, intelligent and 
smart governance in Ningbo.

The city attaches great importance to the building of 5G networks, which are 
the foundation of smart city construction. As of the end of August this year, 
9,458 5G base stations have been built in Ningbo, with 5G signals covering key 
urban areas, ports and bays across the city, said Chen Chenghai, an official 
with Ningbo Municipal Economic and Information Technology Bureau, at a session 
of the 10th Smart City and Intelligent Economy Expo.

Ningbo has formed a number of typical application demonstration cases of 5G 
plus intelligent port, intelligent driving, smart culture and tourism, 
intelligent manufacturing and industrial Internet. For example, Ningbo Zhoushan 
Port, China's busiest port, has started using 5G technology to control cranes 
since last April, the first of its kind in the country.

In the next step, Ningbo will continue to speed up deploying 5G networks to 
empower smart city construction, said Chen.
