A national demonstration zone for cross-border data flows – in the Lin-gang Special Area in East China's Shanghai city – opened recently, with final construction work making steady progress.

An opening ceremony for the Lin-gang international data harbor was held in Lin-gang on Sept 8.

At the same time telco China Unicom marked the founding of a digital intelligence technology company in the area, to help Lin-gang build digital infrastructure focused on computing power.

The new company will focus on the layout of the new generation of infrastructure and meet the needs for the development of key industries.

Lin-gang unveiled a plan for a global digital harbor in June 2020. Since then, it has accelerated the advancement of its digital industrialization and regulatory innovation. It has brought together innovative digital enterprises and promoted the cross-border circulation of data in such fields of endeavor as internet connected vehicles, e-commerce and finance.
