In the 2022 Shanghai Municipal Government Work Report, it is clearly pointed out that efforts will be made to promote the digital transformation of the city and accelerate the construction of an international digital capital with world influence. Shanghai attaches great importance to the development of digital industries, and thus has strong demands and high requirements for information infrastructure.
The solid development of information infrastructure cannot be without the support and guarantee of policies and environmental factors. In the past year, Shanghai has formulated and released opinions and the "14th Five-Year Plan" to comprehensively promote the city's digital transformation, introduced and implemented several policies and measures to promote the city's digital transformation, and cooperated with the formulation of data regulations. The introduction of a series of policies, regulations and plans has promoted the expansion and development of infrastructure.
The vigorous development of Shanghai's digital industry has radiation and driving effects on the Yangtze River Delta region. Zhejiang, Jiangsu, and Anhui have also formulated policies to build strong computing infrastructure.
This article organized the policies related to the digital industry in the Yangtze River Delta region.
