Bike-sharing giant Mobike Technology Ltd signed a cooperation contract with the Chengdu Municipal Government on July 12, agreeing to establish the western China headquarters of Mobike in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province.

According to the contract, Mobike will actively take part in Chengdu’s construction of a smart city.

With the support of Chengdu’s education resources, Mobike will establish big data and IoT research centers to realize the integration of technology in Chengdu.

Relying on Mobike’s data resources and operational experience, a big data sharing platform will be constructed to provide smart city services.

Chengdu authorities have pointed out that the city will initiate policies and improve its market environment to support Mobike’s development. Chengdu also encourages Mobike to strengthen investments in R&D to further improve its products.
