iSoftStone Helps Countries and Regions along "The Belt and Road" Route Achieve Digital Upgrade
Friday, May 19, 2017

BEIJING, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Belt and Road (B&R) initiative, China's massive development strategy to strengthen economic ties with the countries across the Eurasian landmass, has attracted the attention of many hi-tech companies across the country who are seeking to share their experience in big data, cloud computing and the Internet of Things with countries and regions along the initiative's route.

iSoftStone recently completed Phase I of the E-Village project in cooperation with Bangladesh. The project is the first smart agriculture initiative between China and Bangladesh. iSoftStone listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2011, then later chose to delist and is now operating as a private company. The company now has nearly 120 branches in 55 cities worldwide and over 38,000 employees, operating businesses on different continents, including North America, Asia and Europe.

Through the E-Village project, iSoftStone has deployed information and communication technologies to implement food safety standards and sustainable agricultural development in rural communities across Bangladesh, including providing farmers with a full suite of solutions, from seed selection to selective crop marketing. The project leverages advanced tools and technologies, with communication equipment and sensor-based technologies as the main tools, and is expected to help enhance the level of digitalization being applied to agriculture in Bangladesh, a country that is still heavily and overly reliant on traditional farming practices.

In addition, iSoftStone plans to bring its rich experience and innovative ideas in smart city construction and information technology services to Haryana, India as well as work hand in hand with its strategic partner, Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and services company Huawei, in participating in the planning and implementation of the digital transformation of Indonesia's tourism industry.

As one of China's leading technology service providers, iSoftStone has taken on for itself as a mission the digital transformation of its enterprise clients and the construction of smart cities in the Chinese market.

The mission has led to iSoftStone building an urban cloud service platform in Sanming, Fujian province, one of the Chinese cities along the B&R route, and in assisting in the establishment of big data industry clusters in several Chinese cities, one of the first being Hohhot, Inner Mongolia. The company is also working with the government of Nanning, the capital of Guangxi Autonomous Region in southern China, to build out the region's big data innovation and incubator base. iSoftStone is involved in similar projects in more than 100 cities across China.

The B&R initiative has provided a mechanism for iSoftStone's expansion into overseas markets and an opportunity for the company to apply its rich technology experience in China's smart cities as well as in smart agriculture and smart tourism, in countries and regions beyond the borders of its home market. B&R opens the way for Chinese firms to expand internationally, rather than being solely dependent on infrastructure construction. This kind of technology innovation export is expected to become an important part of the international development roadmap for many Chinese firms.
