GUANGZHOU — The Hong Kong-based MTR Corporation has teamed up with domestic property giant Country Garden and the local government to set up a smart MTR railway research and development center in southern Chinese city Foshan. 

The establishment of the R&D center is part of local government's efforts to facilitate the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area 

Located in the city's Shunde District, the center will leverage technologies such as cloud computing and Internet of Things to process railway and property data to help upgrade local industries. 

The three parties will pilot the transit-oriented development model in integrating local railway transport network, real estate construction and industries.
