Another Chinese city jumps into the metaverse, this time Xiamen, with a new three-year industrial development action plan for the metaverse.

The Xiamen plan focuses on: basic research, applications, innovation, and an industrial ecosystem for the metaverse by 2024.

This city-level thing and the metaverse is happening a lot. Not clear to me at this point whether it’s driven from the top or just keeping up with your innovative neighbor.  I do not have metaverse tagged as a New Type Infrastructure category, sub-category, or project, but I’m watching.
