Several experts will attend the core forum, including Shen Changxiang and Tan Jianrong, academicians at the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Shen will give a speech on information industry safety.

Chen Min'er, Guizhou's provincial Party chief, said at a recent meeting that poverty alleviation, big data and environmental protection are the province's three "big strategies".

"We will further promote the big data strategy, using it to lead economic transformation and upgrades, to improve the ability of government management, and to serve people's livelihood and social welfare," Chen said at the 12th Provincial Congress of the Communist Party of China in Guizhou.

Chen Gang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Guizhou CPC Provincial Committee and Guiyang's Party chief, said at a meeting of big data enterprises in Guiyang that the city is ready to put big data to use in government management, civilian and commercial fields, and provide other cities and regions in China with related services, expanding the market for enterprises.

In 2016, the province received approval from the central government to build the country's first big data experimental zone and released China's first local regulations for big data.

More than 200 global companies, including IBM and Qualcomm, have invested over 240 billion yuan ($34.84 billion) in Guizhou's big data industry, which is now worth more than 500 billion yuan.
