CHENGDU, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- The digital economy scale in southwest China's Sichuan Province is expected to reach 2 trillion yuan by the end of 2022, with its contribution to the local GDP exceeding 40 percent, according to an action plan released by the province last Friday. 

In recent years, Sichuan Province has vigorously promoted the construction of new infrastructure led by the digital industry. In 2019, the overall scale of the province's digital economy exceeded 1.4 trillion yuan.

According to the action plan, Sichuan will build a total of 120,000 5G base stations by the end of 2022, with the number of data center cabinets in use and networking equipment reaching 100,000 and 10 million respectively. 

The province is expected to build over 20 blockchain technology application demonstration scenarios, more than 3 vehicle-road collaborative demonstration routes, over 200,000 new energy vehicle charging piles, 30 major technological infrastructure and more than 600 industrial technology innovation facilities as of the end of 2020.

In order to achieve the goals, Sichuan Province has proposed more than ten specific measures including building 5G networks in an all-out manner, setting up new satellite Internet, coordinating the layout and construction of data centers, accelerating the construction of an intelligent computing system, and building a large scientific device cluster.

In the meanwhile, Sichuan will support new research and development institutions, colleges and universities, and leading technology companies to conduct strategic collaboration and joint research, in a bid to accelerate making breakthroughs in cutting-edge technologies and promoting the transformation of scientific and technological achievements.
