Details :

In 2017, PwC completed the consultancy study for the Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong. The report covers eight major areas including policy objectives and strategies, development plans, governance arrangement, digital infrastructure, legal framework, public-private collaboration, crowdsourcing of ideas and pilot proposals.


To ensure a more holistic view on the development of a Smart Hong Kong, the report has proposed a wide range of activities covering six major smart themes - Smart Mobility, Smart Living, Smart Environment, Smart People, Smart Government and Smart Economy.


One of the key success factors for successful smart city implementation is availability of data for research, commercial and innovation purposes. Data covers both spatial data and other non-spatial data, in structured and unstructured forms. Indeed, the Chief Executive has pledged to open more geospatial and geo-tagged data of the Government.


In this event the speakers will share with participants their views on the vision for smart city, the key elements of the Hong Kong Smart City Blueprint, the need for having a Spatial Data Infrastructure in Hong Kong, and ways in which spatial data may be used to support Smart City initiatives and enhance the quality of life of our people.
