The global economic landscape is increasingly tilting in favour of Asia. Home to more than half of the world’s total population, Asia also contains the fastest-growing and emerging markets in the world. With the expected GDP growths from China, the Philippines, India, Malaysia and Indonesia, Asia is at the top of global growth projections over the next 2 years, and all set to be the main driver of growth for the rest of the world, especially the move towards smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Global ICT innovators, city planning authorities and engineering experts are coming together to leverage on digital technology, intelligence and smart designs, to build smart, connected and sustainable cities that improve the quality of life for its citizens and secure future generations.
Smart cities are also globally competitive with regard to innovation and creation of key enabling technologies and infrastructures such as ubiquitous connectivity, reliable energy, safe travel and transportation, smart education, sustainable agriculture, online healthcare and financial services, etc. to further improve the quality of life of the citizens and productivity of both the private and public sectors.
An important enabler for the successful fulfilment of smart cities is information. Industry stakeholders are creating smart devices and sensors that can collect valuable data, and transmit them real time through advanced communications systems to address gaps and develop solutions for smart cities.
The industry is moving at a rapid pace where we are connecting businesses, people, cities, systems and things around the globe today – all for the objectives of value-adding societies, ensuring sustainable living, and creating better experiences.
