The province of Shandong in East China will continue to advance the deep integration of big data and public services and build an internationally competitive digital industry cluster during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25), said local authorities.

Since the end of last year, the Shandong Provincial Big Data Bureau, the Shandong Provincial Department of Finance and other departments have been working together to facilitate the construction of digital facilities to boost smart governance.

In early March this year, Jining city launched the first video perception integrated management platform in Shandong.

The platform, which is powered by 5G transmission, algorithm analysis and other cutting-edge technologies, can be used to develop various application scenarios in social administration, which will contribute to the province's efforts to boost the modernization of local governance system and capacity as well as high-quality development, said Shandong officials.

"The platform has developed more than 70 types of application scenarios, such as emergency management, urban management, and municipal water conservancy," said Zhang Yuchen, head of the platform development team from Dahua Technology Co, a video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider.

In the coming five years, Shandong will intensify efforts to foster a new smart city ecosystem.

"More measures and policies will be released to boost innovation and explore growth areas such as smart city, artificial intelligence and big data in the province," said an official from the Shandong Provincial Big Data Bureau. "The boom in the internet economy fueled by COVID-19 should be harnessed to promote the integrated development of the digital economy and the real economy and foster new industries and new business forms."
