Hefei, located in East China and between the Yangtze River and Huaihe River, is the sub-center of the Yangtze River Delta city cluster and a comprehensive national scientific center. Hefei is also a strategically important city covered by the "Belt and Road" Initiative and the Yangtze River Economic Belt. As the capital of Anhui province, it is also an important national scientific research and education base, a modern manufacturing base and a comprehensive transportation hub. In addition, Hefei is the first and only pilot city of scientific and technological innovation in China, and a national pilot "smart city". In recent years, Hefei has made continuous efforts in digital industrialization and digitization of industries, and has achieved remarkable results in the development of the big data industry, data collection and storage, application of data resources, talent reserve, information infrastructure construction and enterprise clustering.
