In the 2016 Policy Address, the Chief Executive re-affirmed Government’s commitment to building Hong Kong as a smart city. To this end, the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer has commissioned a consultancy study for formulating a smart city blueprint for Hong Kong.
Objectives of developing Hong Kong into a smart city are:
(a) making use of innovation and technology to address urban challenges to enhance city management and improve quality of living, sustainability, efficiency and safety of our city;
(b) enhancing city attractiveness to global business and talents; and
(c) inspiring continuous city innovation and sustainable economic development.
The consultancy study is scheduled to complete by mid-2017. The blueprint to be formulated under the consultancy study will map out short, medium and longer term measures up to 2030 for developing Hong Kong into a smart city. It will cover policy objectives and strategy, development plans, governance arrangements, digital infrastructure, open data sharing and public-private collaboration.
This dedicated portal is set up by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer to collect input from the public for the formulation of a blueprint to develop Hong Kong into a smart city.
You are invited to submit, through this portal, your suggestions and related information on the use of innovation and technology to make Hong Kong a smarter place to live in. Your input will be considered in mapping out implementation measures to be set out in the smart city blueprint.
Data collected through this portal are securely protected and will only be used for activities related to the development of the blueprint.
