Hong Kong needs to continue with its drive to foster a technology and innovation culture locally if it is to compete with other smart cities, according to a new survey by KPMG.

The report, entitled Connecting Hong Kong – Perspectives on our future as a smart city, was published in association with CLP Holdings, JOS, Siemens and the Smart City Consortium. It features findings from a survey, conducted by YouGov, of more than 500 business executives and 1,000 citizens in Hong Kong on their perceptions of its smart city strengths and weaknesses.

Julian Vella, ASPAC Regional Head - Global Infrastructure Advisory & Co-Head – China Infrastructure, KPMG will share the findings from the report. He will also compare the survey findings with the aspirations set out under Hong Kong's Smart City Blueprint, which was released by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer in December 2017. This will be followed by an interesting discussion with panelists:

  • Austin Bryan - Senior Director – Innovation, CLP Holdings
  • Mark Lunt - Group Managing Director, JOS
  • Keith Cheng - Head of HK Digitalization Hub, Siemens
  • Eric Yeung - President of SCC
  • The panel will be moderated by Anson Bailey, Head of Technology and Consumer Retail, KPMG.

The survey focuses on six key sectors for Hong Kong's smart city development, namely, transportation and mobility, finance, education, environment, healthcare, and energy and resources. Please join us to keep abreast of the latest challenges to Hong Kong's journey to transform itself as a smart city.
