|Project Title:||RFID Application Service Technology in Guangdong-Hongkong Import/Export Supervision and Management|
|Hosting Institution:||LSCM R&D Centre (LSCM)|
|Abstract:||The joint collaboration between Guangdong and Hong Kong has become an indispensable driving force for economic and technological development in the PRD region. According to statistics, Guangdong's total foreign-trade volume weighs more than 350 Billion US dollars. Guangdong-Hong Kong's import/export trade valued at 250 Billion US dollars. Hong Kong direct investment in Guangdong exceeds 5 Billion US dollars, accounting for over 52.3 percent of the provincial actual foreign direct investment.
Aiming at strengthening the co-operation and supporting the growth for both Guangdong and Hong Kong, this project focuses on the supervision and management of imported/exported goods between the regions. Its goal is to develop and establish a cross-border goods supervision service platform to facilitate e-logistics, information exchange and supply chain applications between Guangdong and Hong Kong. The project also focuses on exploring RFID technology and related applications for the imported and exported goods between Hong Kong and Guangdong. It will introduce cross-border supervision and management applications, application standard research and pilot cases which are all based on RFID technology, cross-border information service platform, and other key enabling technologies.
In order to demonstrate RFID technology in the sectors, pilot study and typical enterprise applications for the monitoring of live pigs will be developed. The adoption of RFID technology will ensure safety and quality of commodities and enhance their tracking and traceability, particularly for food safety and animal epidemic prevention and control. In addition, through the application of RFID technology, it is expected that the project will strongly promote the rapid development of the RFID industry.
