Guo Baichun, the Vice Mayor of the City of Yinchuan, gave some personal insights into the pressures of being in office in a smart city. He said that people often ask what the motivation is behind making this relatively small city of 200,000 people in the western region of China into one of the country’s showcase smart cities.

Baichun noted that it’s not a motivation, so much as the result of the daily pressures of his job and the need to find solutions to serve citizens better. He outlined how his day starts with lines of people waiting at his office with documents for him to sign and expecting immediate decisions. He said it is too difficult to make the right decisions in a short time and some mayors control risk by circulating the documents to the relevant departments for comment, but typically they come back a couple of months later with little that is of help.
