Hu Wen, COO of Pony.ai, a world’s leading self-driving car company, said the company has settled in Nansha for only 5 months but it has already completed a large amount of trial rides. “Next we will cooperate with Nansha government and develop an autonomous ride-sharing fleet to serve the public in Mingzhu Bay Area. This plan could be realized in 2 to 3 years,” said Hu Wen.
When asked about the most impressive thing in Nansha, Hu Wen said he was amazed by the efficiency of its business registration process. “It took us less than one month from negotiation to receiving our business license here,” he said.
