Premier Li Keqiang visited an exhibition on big data achievements in Southwest China’s Guizhou province on May 25 and applauded the development of new technologies in the province, such as big data and the Internet of Things.
A staff member of 56qq.com - an online freight trading platform – told the Premier that the company connected 300,000 shippers with 1.7 million truck drivers in China through the internet and built an information platform covering the whole country’s highway logistics, which brought the empty-loaded rate down 6 percent.
Premier Li said that this is meaningful as new technologies, such as big data and the Internet of Things, should serve the people.
During the visit, a local official also told Premier Li that Guizhou has witnessed more inflow of college graduates who started working here due to the explosive growth of big data industry in the province.
The Premier applauded the phenomenon, saying that college graduates who are willing to start their careers in Guizhou is an indication that the development of the new economy, which is based on big data, holds great attraction.
“Only if you seize the highest of talented people will you seize development opportunities,” the Premier said.
