By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

Urumqi, Aug. 25(Greenpost)— A group of 21 Chinese and 14 Foreign journalists visited Xinjiang Software Park on Aug. 25 after they had visited the Urumqi realignment center.

With a total of 410 thousand square meter of building area, and an area of 14 hectares, Xinjiang Software Park has been approved as a provincial level park. Xinjiang has tried its best to make the park a high land in software and information industry concentration, starting up, innovation and development.

Xinjiang Software Park insists on “cultivating and developing the software service industry as its mission”, giving full play to the unique advantages of Xinjiang’s location, language, talents and culture, and integrating the industrial advantages of Xinjiang.

Under the leadership of the autonomous region and the party committee and government of Urumqi, the software park will form a base for R&D, production and industrialisation of software outsourcing and information service industry, and to bring into full play of the industrial agglomeration effect and the benefits of scale.

The park uses cloud computing, Internet of Things, Internet and Beidou navigation as the four leading industries to cultivate and strive to build “Xinjiang” as a software and information service industrial park featuring Xinjiang features, first-class in the west, and advanced China.

Two of the most impressive things  here are the 2025 program that President Xi Jinping proposed that China should move from a large technological nation  to a technological power. Under the guidance of such strategic objectives, all parts of the country are actively developing various advanced technologies such as smart technology, big data, and cloud computing.

The other is the language center here. People can choose their own language with a push of a button. There are Uyghur language, Chinese, French, English and many other languages. Any input, or voice, can be translated. In this way, one can deepen  understanding and avoid misunderstandings. For example, the Belgian journalist said i French, then it immediately translated into Chinese. The ability of languages is very important in Xinjiang where there are  multi-ethnic groups living and working.

Of course, there is also a smart technology that impresses the reporter, that is, the use of drones in medical care. If there is a patient in a community, the drone can sense it by remote sensing technology and then rescue the patient as soon as possible.
