The major goals are that more than 70% of manufacturing enterprises above designated size will be involved in network intelligent transformation, the coverage rate of core enterprises' intelligent monitoring pollutant discharges will reach 80%, and the collection rate of real time traffic data will hit 60%.

The "Action Plan" involves Zhuhai Smart City Development's 2018 short-term objectives and 2020 overall objectives. Specifically, short-term objectives aim to achieve a comprehensive deployment of intelligent city construction, the establishment of an industrial ecological control platform, the development of digital information technology and broadband networks, etc.
