East China's Zhejiang province has been seeking new paths to get rid of traditional manufacturing methods and realize intelligent manufacturing through the application of automatic machines.

New information technologies have been developing very fast in Zhejiang in recent years, especially those concerning cloud computing, big data and artificial intelligence. The development of the digital economy, including the digitalized transformation of production lines, has been given priority and is regarded as the "No 1 Project" by the province.

Zhejiang plans to build 1,000 outstanding demonstration projects for its intelligent transformation every year in a bid to put more projects in motion.

The Zhejiang government office recently released a document on the technological transformation in industrial companies. The Zhejiang Province Economic and Information Commission, in collaboration with the provincial finance department, announced they will provide consultation services and financial support for real economy players, especially those in the manufacturing sector.
