China may add another 50 pilot cities to the nation's smart cities project over the next three months, Xinhua News Agency reported, citing Qiu Baoxing, vice-minister of Housing and Urban-Rual Development.


In January, the ministry announced the first batch of 90 pilot cities for the project. Most of them were second- and third-tier cities.


The project is aimed at advancing the nation's urbanization and industries such as telecommunications and infrastructure.


It will drive about 2 trillion yuan ($322 billion) in investment by 2015, according to research from the State Information Center.
