Global Smart City China Congress & Award will serve as a platform for all the stakeholders involved in smart cities to disseminate, share and exchange information, make new collaborations, and work together to discover and expand business opportunities.
By the middle of the 21st century, it is estimated that the urban population will almost double, increasing from approximately 3.4 billion in 2009 to 6.4 billion in 2050, representing 70% of the world’s population. The scale of urbanization is unprecedented and the process is still ongoing across the Asia Pacific region and the globe. Cities will be at the heart of world development in the next few decades. Nevertheless, this urban world comes with a complex set of environmental, economic and social challenges: climate change, high consumption of energy, depleting of natural resources, slowdown in economic development and higher demands from citizens for better services and greater participation in public decision. In this context, government and business leader came to the realization that cities must take the lead to keep pace with rapid technological change, and create networks that connect people, knowledge and services. If we fully utilize the range of technologies that are now available and build smarter cities, we will not only find solutions to age‐old issues but also break through into new thresholds of development.
