According to the Big Data Development Administration of Guizhou Province, big data investment by Southwest China's Guizhou province reached 20.54 billion yuan ($3.02 billion) in 2022, a year-on-year increase of 30.35 percent.
Last year, big data investment in Guiyang and Guian New Area was 9.03 billion yuan, which accounted for 43.96 percent of the province's total.
The Guizhou branches of China Mobile and China Telecom had the most investment in information infrastructure last year, at 6.19 billion yuan and 2.83 billion yuan, respectively.
Investment in information infrastructure accounted for the highest proportion of investment in big data, at 59.85 percent, followed by 24.33 percent for industrial digitalization investment and 15.82 percent for digital industrialization investment.
As Guizhou's big data industrial chain is being optimized and extended, the occupations of industrial digitalization and digital industrialization are increasing.
