Asia Pacific is home to most of the world's largest and fastest-growing urban areas, and smart city technology is becoming a crucial element of their future development.
Nations throughout the region are sponsoring enormous new urban areas to house growing populations and creating policies that encourage smart city technology to guide their development.
Working with an evolving mix of international and regional smart city technology firms, Asia Pacific governments are piloting a variety of technologies to solve urban problems, reduce urban energy and resource use, and prepare for future growth. Leading cities and providers are taking the initial steps in integrating networks of intelligent technologies to create true smart cities.
