China's blockchain landscape moves west
Since 2020, the role of blockchain in digital economy and other fields has become increasingly prominent, and it has also appeared more frequently in the work reports of local governments.
According to statistics, 22 provinces across the country have written the blockchain into the 2020 government work report. In fact, in addition to the provinces and cities that have always been in the first echelon of the blockchain, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, and Shenzhen, there are also central and western provinces such as Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan, and Yunnan that see blockchain as a way to accelerate traditional physical industries and modern service industries. A great boost for quality development.
Earlier this year, Shaanxi Province issued the "Implementation Opinions of the Shaanxi Provincial People's Government of the Communist Party of China on Doing a Good Job in the Key Areas of Agriculture, Rural Areas, and Farmers" to Ensure the Full-scale Well-off Construction on Schedule. The "Opinions" specifically mentioned the application of blockchain in agricultural finance, agricultural insurance, quality and safety traceability, supply chain, precision poverty alleviation, etc .; and proposed the construction of agricultural and rural big data centers to accelerate the Internet of Things, blockchain, and artificial intelligence. 5. The application of modern information technologies such as fifth-generation mobile communication networks and smart weather in the agricultural field.
Chongqing also mentioned the blockchain four times in the government work report: in promoting industrial transformation and upgrading, it implemented a special action plan for high-quality development of the manufacturing industry, and introduced special policies such as biomedicine, blockchain, and industrial Internet; "Screen device nuclear network" on the entire industrial chain, upgrade the blockchain industry innovation base to promote the development of blockchain technology and industry innovation; in the construction of "cloud-connected computing" element cluster, the construction of AI computing, block Chains are the supporting enabling platforms.
Blockchain has been increasingly valued by the central and western regions.
Zheng Lei, the Deputy Dean of the Hong Kong International New Economic Research Institute and a special expert at the Shenzhen Bay Area International Financial Technology Laboratory once said: "Because the blockchain is in the early stages of development, the gap between the provinces has not clearly opened. Follow up with the blockchain in a timely manner. Technology is an opportunity to reduce the gap between the central and western regions and the eastern region and improve social governance. "
Looking at the work reports of local governments this year, it is not difficult to find that the government has put forward more specific and detailed requirements for the development plan of the blockchain, especially in the fields of government affairs and digital economy, which have received widespread attention. It can be seen that in the future, the blockchain may become a new track for overtaking in economic corners of many provinces and cities.
