Connected Cities: Building Smarter, More Liveable Cities for a Sustainable Future
26 April 2019, 8:30 – 10:00 AM

From Europe to Asia, motivations for smart city development are shifting – from excitement over what digital technologies have to offer to a more thoughtful consideration of how these technologies can be put to work to improve the lives of citizens. To ensure a sustainable future, cities must put liveability at the heart of development and investment plans.

To track citizens’ opinions on top priorities for smart city development going forward, KPMG China, in association with CLP Holdings, JOS, Siemens, Smart City Consortium and Wilson Group, recently launched a new report entitled Connected Cities: Citizen insights across Asia Pacific.

The report features findings from a survey of 4,192 residents in Hong Kong, Melbourne, Seoul, Shanghai and Singapore, seeking residents’ opinions on the development areas most important to them as well as what benefits they expect as their cities become ‘smarter’. Key focus areas include transportation and mobility, building a future-focused workforce, living environment, healthcare, energy and resources and the impact of technology.

During this morning’s talk, a KPMG Partner, Marcos Chow will share our Connected Cities report highlights, followed by a panel discussion on the following topics:

  • The current state of smart city development in the five cities surveyed as well as key differentiators and best practices
  • Hong Kong’s progress in six areas: smart mobility, smart living, smart environment, smart people, smart government and smart economy, as well as next steps
  • How can we apply technology to improve Hong Kong’s living environment and better manage the city’s energy and resources to build a more sustainable future
  • Other recent trends in smart city development

 

Panellists:

  • Mr. Austin Bryan, Senior Director, CLP Holdings Ltd.
  • Mr. Clube Ng, Founding Co-Chairman, Connected City Alliance
  • Mr. Marcos Chow, Partner, IT Advisory, KPMG
  • Ms. Sabine Reppert, CEO, Deon Digital Hong Kong Ltd.
  • Mr. Tony Wong, Assistant Government Chief Information Officer, HKSAR Government
  • Ms. Waltraut Ritter, Managing Director, Knowledge Dialogues
  • Moderator: Mr. Tom Uiterwall, CEO, Reconergy Ltd.

 

Cost: HK$250 for members / HK$350 for non-members

The analysis presented in today's Country Reports shows that the economic recovery, together with the reforms carried out in many parts of Europe, has contributed to improving the labour market and social context in Europe. Unemployment is at a ten-year low and almost back to pre-crisis levels, investment is picking up and public finances continue to improve. The share of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion has decreased to pre-crisis levels. However, remaining vulnerabilities, such as the high level of public and private debt, need to be overcome to safeguard the sustainability and inclusiveness of the current economic growth.

You, as business leaders, also have choices to make in a context of uncertainty. The UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019. That is the only certainty we have at this stage. It is therefore important that all businesses analyse their exposure to the UK and are ready to adapt their logistics, supply chains and contracts. Of course, the transition period currently under negotiation would give you more time to adapt. However, certainty about the transition will only come at the end of the process, with the ratification of the withdrawal agreement by both sides –probably early next year.
