Emerging with Resilience: Fostering a Smarter Future

The pandemic has created strong tailwinds for global technology adoption at an unprecedented rate and accelerated the next wave of a smart urban transformation. Over the past challenging years, smart city innovations have emerged as the champion force to power the speedy recovery for economies and communities, reinventing a smarter future for all.


Being an international innovation and technology hub with the distinctive edge of global vision and strategic connectivity with the Greater Bay Area and the rest of the world, Hong Kong is set to spur new growth leveraging opportunities brought by the National 14th Five-Year Plan and from the new opportunities worldwide. The upcoming DES (rebranded from the Internet Economy Summit, IES) will unveil global and regional visions on how smart city technologies will supercharge smart economies as well as accelerate the formation of futureproof digital societies.
