Fighting the coronavirus epidemic has become a national priority for China. We believe that in the face of the epidemic, the power of science and technology will ultimately help China and its people to overcome this crisis. As such, TechNode has launched a “Tech for Good” feature page to understand the efforts of some of China’s tech companies that offer their innovation and kindness amidst the dark moments of this crisis.
We hope that the majority of tech companies and entrepreneurs will join us in this initiative. To submit relevant news that fits into the Tech for Good feature, please contact Suzanne Loo.
