China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said in a Monday meeting that the government plans to promote construction of new infrastructure such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoTs), and data centers in the coming months. These projects are aimed at making China’s digital economy a more systematic and mature industry, Xiao Yaqing, the head of MIIT, said in the meeting. The Chinese government plans to build centralized data centers in the southwestern regions, where energy sources are cheaper and more abundant. [MIIT, in Chinese]
