In Shaoxing, Yuan watched a presentation of the city's "enterprise code 2.0", which is based on China's health QR code to monitor enterprises' status and can be used in various scenarios. He spoke highly of the convenient operation model and its contributions to streamlining administrative processes.

Yuan also visited Shaoxing's public security bureau and inspected its "public opinion collection center" and "collaborative operation center", both of which are the latest practices of the "Fengqiao experience" social governance method.

This method was created in Fengqiao town in the 1960s when the local government sought to improve the public's engagement in mediating disputes. It later became a national model for public security.

Yuan said that digitalized thinking and methods are key to a city's innovation in urban management, governance system, and administration philosophy. He encouraged local officials to share more data with the general public.
