Lingang’s ‘flying fish’ blueprint

THE Lingang area of the Shanghai free trade zone has revealed plans for a global digital harbor.

The harbor on the East China Sea will cover 100 hectares, according to a blue­print unveiled yesterday.

Neighboring a scientific community in the east, and connected to the S2 express­way and Donghai Bridge in the west, Hangzhou Bay in the south and Chenghe Har­bor in the north, the global digital harbor looks like a flying fish from the perspec­tive of a bird’s-eye view.

The “flying fish” will house a cross-border data gateway test station, according to Wu Xiaohua, a deputy director of the Lingang Special Area Administrative Committee.

It will be the first step in turning Lingang into a global data harbor and a special area of digital economy amid the accelerated construction of the next generation infor­mation infrastructure.

Also yesterday, the Shang­hai Lingang Special Area Cross-Border Data Technol­ogy Co was officially set up.
