In 2021, over 700 subsidiaries of nearly 70 central SOEs invested a total of 400 billion yuan (about 59.6 billion U.S. dollars) in new infrastructure, according to the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council.

New infrastructure refers to infrastructure that is digital, smart and innovative, including projects related to 5G networks, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.

Net profits of central SOEs expanded 5.6 percent year on year in the first four months of the year, the commission has said.
