More than 250 foreigners, including executives of multinational companies and Magnolia Award winners, toured the Shibei high Technology Park to view Shanghai’s progress in creating a “smart city.”

Shibei is a prime example of how traditional smokestack industries have been converted into clean, innovative businesses. The park is home to the Shanghai Big Data exchange — the “brains” of smart city development.

Kristin Iglum, Norwegian consul general  in Shanghai, said she was very impressed by the tour. “It was amazing,” she said.

“We also have a similar focus in Norway, aiming to make our neighborhoods as livable as possible and encourage a green, sustainable way of life.”
