In BCYC’s first Knowledge Exchange Collective held on 28 May 2020, Alvona Loh Zi Hui, a junior doctor and the vice president of BCYC shared her views on the technological advancements in China and its relevance to Singapore.
Alvona shared how China’s technology advancements were fast and wide-ranging, where technology transformations were experienced across various sectors from the financial industry, the real estate and even to the entertainment industry. She highlighted how the size of mobile cashless payments for example, accelerated from 2.31 trillion yuan in 2012 to 277.39 trillion yuan in 2018.
China’s impressive digital infrastructure and economy is a story of commercial success. Interconnected cyber-physical systems, from e-commerce, to e-payments and logistics, for example, have made it simple and convenient for users to adopt and integrate in everyday lives.
