Hohhot, North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, won the "2021 China Leading Smart City" award for its strong progress in developing into a smart city, according to local media reports.

The results were announced at the China Hi-Tech Fair 2021, which opened in Shenzhen, South China's Guangdong province, on Dec 27, 2021.

In addition to Hohhot, 23 cities including Nanjing, Nanchang, Shenzhen, Suzhou and Wuhan made the list.

Hohhot has been making significant strides in developing smart city technologies, with the Hohhot City Brain Smart City Management System now officially online, boosting the efficiency and convenience of city management.

The system helps the city manage its overall appearance, sanitation and other urban management issues, and is helping implement the city's urban refinement and intelligence goals.

The Hohhot City Brain was officially launched on Jan 20, 2021, becoming the first city-level city brain in the autonomous region.

It is composed of a city brain intelligence center and four basic support systems: perception, data, security, and the Aiqingcheng app, as well as various applications generated from it.

Construction work has also begun on the Yili Modern Smart Health Valley Industry-City Integration Project in Hohhot.

The project is intended to help create a world-class high-quality development complex for the dairy industry and promote the overall upgrading of the industry.
