Smart City SIG (SCSIG)

Brief Description

According to the “Smart City Research Report” conducted by the Central Policy Unit in Sept 2015, there are 20 cities classified by a consulting company, HIS, as Smart Cities. The number will increase to 90 by 2025. Developing smart cities is becoming a key strategy of many countries for global competitiveness as well as sustainability. Hong Kong was ranked by Boyd Cohen as number 4 Smart City in Asia Pacific thanks to the popularity of electronic payment. In order to strengthen Hong Kong as a top Smart City, there are many areas to be further improved, i.e., legal framework, development focus and strategy, technology R&D as well as adoption, economic value and community support, etc.

Smart City Special Interest Group (SCSIG) believes Smart City is not just a technology initiative but also a strategic direction for Hong Kong to progress with the involvement of all stakeholders from government, businesses, technology provider to the citizens. SCSIG preaches the sharing of experience and professional knowledge in the adoption and application of Smart City initiatives. We motivates like-minded people to share and drive it, if you are interested in joining as our members or executive committee, please drop us an email (scsig@hkcs.org.hk) with attention to Mr. Dennis Lee – Chairman of SCSIG, or contact the Secretariat at 2834 2228.
