On the afternoon of June 9th, Mr. Gong Zheng, Deputy Secretary of CPC Shandong Committee and Governor of Shandong Province, met with Mr. Rajesh Prabhakaran, Vice President of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), and his team.
Governor Gong expressed welcome to the guests and introduced to them Shandong’s economic and social development. Shandong has identified the fostering of growth drivers from old ones to new ones as the major undertaking leading Shandong’s economic development. The province strives to make progress in four areas through new technologies, new industries, new forms of business and new models, and promotes innovative, sustainable and leading development. It will, therefore, provide ample space for the two sides’ cooperation. HPE now has two key projects in Shandong, namely the Qingdao-HPE Software Big Data Global Application Research & Industry Foundation and HPE Jining Global Software Talent and Industry Foundation. Mr. Gong hoped that the two sides could, on the basis of extending existing cooperation, give full play to HPE’s advantages in such areas as big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things, mobility, safety, smart application, smart manufacturing and smart cities, step up integration and realize win-win cooperation.
Mr. Prabhakaran briefed HPE’s development in Shandong and its focusing areas in the near future. He said that HPE would enhance its engagement and cooperation with Shandong, share HPE’s experience in the building of future city, big data, cloud computing and other areas, and build China’s data capital on the basis of HPE Software Big Data Global Application Research Center, so as to contributing to Shandong’s economic transformation and upgrading.
