Huihaiwan IoT town is being co-built by the Wuxi government and state-run technology enterprise China Electronics Technology HIK Group Co Ltd (CETHIK). It aims to help small and medium-sized enterprises in Wuxi boost growth in the IoT industry using CETHIK's platform and managerial experience.

In June, Wuxi in Jiangsu province, Jiading district in Shanghai, Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, Hefei in Anhui province and CETHIK also signed an agreement to promote the integration of IoT sensing, storage, and computing during the 2020 Forum of Major Leaders of the Yangtze River Delta

Chen Zongnian, chairman of CETHIK, expressed hope that more related enterprises could join in the construction of Huihaiwan IoT town to help the industrial town make more breakthroughs in the development of an IoT industrial chain.
