This is the first domestic trial project to focus on government data exchange governance based on blockchain technology.

It is aimed at difficulties in data sharing, scattered coordination, and weak applications in various departments.

Huawei will use a blockchain-based platform for the Beijing government to track and manage its citizens’ data in everything from medical records, property registration and real-time vehicle parking status.

The Beijing government aims to leverage the blockchain platform to make
