Hong Kong’s decade-old “”Smart City”” ambition has sparked the development of new programmes and fresh investments in a range of green and more efficient modes of transport, according to delegates at the Smart Mobility Forum on Friday.

“Under the Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong 2.0 published in 2020, it is the government’s ambition to embrace innovation and technology to build a world-renowned smart Hong Kong, characterised by a strong economy and high quality of living,”” Secretary for Transport and Logistics Lam Sai-hung said at the forum. “”Smart mobility is particularly critical to smart city development.”

As part of the city’s smart mobility push, Lam told the forum – organised by InvestHK and supported by the South China Morning Post – that the government has been rolling out initiatives based on the city’s smart mobility road map.
