Currently, many cities are facing the serious problem of software and hardware separation as they only focus on some function in urban construction, which further results in such problems as excess capacity, failure of industrial structure to adapt to local economic development, etc. In view of this, Pan-China Group proposed the smart city concept as the organic combination of "town economy" and "city economy", which is detailed as follows: study and determine the development positioning of smart city by combining information flow, logistics, capital flow and people as well as regional economic development, industrial development, society, resources, ecology, etc.; determine the hardware infrastructure carrying urban functions and apply related technology to smart construction, in order to realize the endogenous growth of cities and innovation driving and promote regional development; adopt appropriate technical schemes to realize interconnection, maximize the efficiency of urban management and operation and achieve four integration effectively.
By beginning with top-level design including smart planning through to strategic industrial space planning, overall planning and controlled planning and the systematic planning and consulting of urban design and engineering design, study the improvement of urban investment and financing system, import development finance and commercial finance, and employ the PPP model to achieve development, construction and operation.
Transform from urban construction investment thinking to industrial investment thinking and from cost-driven to effect-driven;
Guide smart construction through smart development and promote smart development through smart management.
The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the Ministry of Science and Technology has approved Pan-China as the only pilot enterprise for total factor smart city nationwide. In the opinion of Pan-China Group, a smart city is to construct an industrial system by highly integrating the factor endowment, natural endowment, characteristic industries and informatization of a city and region, and takes new urbanization as the carrier to achieve smart development, smart construction and smart operation and management, fulfill the integration strategy of "industrialization, informatization, new urbanization and agricultural modernization" and promote city value.
Construct smart city development alliance by cooperating with smart industries, investment institutions, scientific research institutes, production enterprises and other relevant units; and carry out professional division of work, business cooperation and industry coordination to construct value ecosystem of full industry chain of smart city, by following the theoretical guidance of "innovation, green, coordination, development and sharing", and taking development & innovation model of smart city as a banner, smart city project as an entry point, smart city development alliance as a platform, industry as support, finance as wing and informatization as approach. Pan-China Group now has come into strategic alliance with a number of enterprises including Huawei and Philisense to establish the industrial ecosphere and platform in which industries related to smart city are gathered.
