What's On

Hong Kong's Smart City Blueprint, published in December 2017, aims to transform Hong Kong into a world class smart city. Innovation and technology are central to reaching this goal, which will ultimately improve people's quality of living, as advances will impact our daily lives, including health, transport and our living environment.

HKGCC and the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macao are teaming up to organize a smart city forum with some of the biggest names of the U.S. technology sector to introduce and discuss the smart city projects in Hong Kong as well as the challenges and opportunities for the development and deployment of smart city technologies. Hong Kong Government officials and representatives from the Smart City Consortium will also provide input on current and future projects planned for Hong Kong.
