As part of the first batch of pilot smart city demonstration areas in China, China-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City has been devoting efforts to accelerate the implementation of its "ecology and wisdom" driven local development strategy.
Currently, Huawei's Binhai base in the eco-city has been put into operation, while 27 smart industrial projects have also settled down in it to jointly build a smart city.
In recent years, the eco-city has attracted a number of smart hi-tech industrial projects, including those by Huawei and JD, launching a series of smart applications spanning smart buses, unmanned supermarkets, future restaurants, and autonomous delivery vehicles.
The area is expected to cluster four major industries by 2035, namely digital cultural creativity, the new generation of information technology, smart manufacturing, and biomedicine.
"The city has realized the importance of top-level design in the initial period of construction, so we’ve learned from advanced experiences from countries like Singapore and South Korea," said Wang Zhe, director of the smart city development bureau of China-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City.
Currently the eco-city has set up practice bases for smart tech industries to cultivate more professional talents, forming a whole smart industrial chain featuring manufacturing, study, research, and application.
