2018 was a landmark year for technology and infrastructure development in Hong Kong. Notable achievements include the launch of the Faster Payment System (FPS) digital payment network and the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link in September as well as the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge in October.


Following up on these accomplishments, the city is planning ambitious targets for smart development in the next two years – including a rollout of electronic identity (eID) for residents, a launch of commercial 5G, and a plan to replace half of coal-powered energy to the city's grid with renewable sources.


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 their 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.


Julian Vella, ASPAC Regional Head - Global Infrastructure Advisory & Co-Head – China Infrastructure, KPMG China will share insights on the current state of smart city development in the five cities surveyed as well as key differentiators and best practices.


In addition, a panel comprising Julian Vella (KPMG), Elke Kornalijnslijper (CLP), Henry Louie (Wilson Group), Keith Cheng (Siemens) and Mark Lunt (JOS) will discuss how Hong Kong's smart infrastructure development compares with other leading world cities, best practices that can be incorporated into Hong Kong's development, and next steps.


First 15-20 minutes is for networking (Sandwiches and beverages included)
