He added that the projects could be implemented in other countries in the region.

“Moving forward, China Mobile will dedicate more resources in these efforts, working together with stakeholders to build an intelligent and digital society by using new technologies such as 5G, IoT, big data, cloud computing and AI.” – Huidi Li, Executive Vice President, China Mobile
