The coming decades hold great promise for Hong Kong’s continued development as a smart and sustainable city. 5G connectivity across the territory combined with strengthened capabilities in artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud and edge computing will enable a new generation of digital-enabled urban applications. These hold the potential to bring a myriad of benefits for cities, such as reducing traffic congestion, creating more energy-efficient buildings, designing more liveable public spaces, and improving delivery of healthcare and other services.
Hong Kong’s Connected Future is the fourth annual study on Hong Kong’s ongoing smart and sustainable city development produced by KPMG China in partnership with Autotoll, CGI, CLP, Cyberport, DLA Piper, JLL, Lenovo, MTR, Siemens, Signify, Sino Group, Smart City Consortium and theDesk. The report captures citizen and business perspectives across the region through a survey of 4,096 residents across seven Asian markets: Hong Kong SAR, mainland China cities within the Greater Bay Area (GBA), Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Shanghai; and interviews with over 20 corporate, academic, start-up, public sector, and NGO executives.
