The exhibition aims to demonstrate the characteristics and achievements of Guizhou's opening-up, as well as promote its competitive industries, policies and investment environment, among other things.
In recent years, as a national big data comprehensive pilot area, Guizhou has been implementing a rigorous digital economy strategy, strengthening support for scientific and technological innovation and accelerating the integrated development of its digital economy and real economy.
While seizing the opportunities presented by the development of the digital economy, Guizhou is helping more and more locally developed software and information technology services to go global, and is increasing the international influence of its big data industry.
One of its CIIE exhibitors – Guizhou Cartegena Information Technology Co – is a software and international outsourcing service company which has experienced rapid development.
According to project director Lu Liangxi, the company has contributed more than 2.5 billion yuan ($345.96 million) to Guizhou's digital economy since it was established in 2013.
Currently, the company is expanding into overseas markets, focusing on its outsourcing services for game art designs and the international company's business processes.
Overall, technological innovation is transforming Guizhou's traditional manufacturing towards intelligent manufacturing and is helping industrial manufacturing products to upgrade their quality and seize a larger market share.
Using CIIE as a springboard, Guizhou is hoping to promote its products and seek more international commerce, and promote the high-quality development of its open economy.
