Since becoming China’s first big data comprehensive pilot area in 2013, Guiyang, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, has been exploring a new path of development by digging into the application value of big data and integrating it with the real economy.
The stable geological structure, cool climate and abundant electricity resources of Guiyang make it suitable for the construction and operation of data centers on a large scale.
Over the past five years, Guiyang has accelerated the construction of information infrastructures, launched multiple supporting policies, and provided platforms to attract more talents and investments.
Top 500 companies from China and the rest of the world such as Intel, Dell, Alibaba, Huawei and JD have come to invest in Guiyang and cultivate more regional big data involved companies.
By 2019, Guiyang has attracted 170,000 big data related talents, which will support the future development of its big data industry.
