Citizen insights across Asia Pacific on smart city development

楊全盛指出,香港在智慧停車場方面落後於其他地區,並指主要成因乃私人市場欠缺誘因開放數據,建議政府與公共服務有關的機構加大開放數據範圍,營造相關氛圍,鼓勵企業分享更多資料。

Mr. Eric Yeung, President of SCC, and Mr. Julian Vella, Partner of KPMG, held a press conference on January 28 to introduce the key findings of a report on smart city development entitled "Connected Cities: Citizen insights across Asia Pacific". This report, published by KPMG China in association with Smart City Consortium, CLP, JOS, Siemens and Wilson Group, features findings from a survey of 4,192 residents in Hong Kong, Melbourne, Seoul, Shanghai and Singapore. The survey seeks residents’ opinions on the development areas most important to them, as well as what benefits they expect as their cities become ‘smarter’.

Mr Yeung opined that "Hong Kong lags behind other regions in the development of smart parking", and this is mainly due to the lack of incentives in private markets to provide data. He recommended and encouraged the government and public service-related organizations to nurture a harmonious sentiment, and expand open data applications and sharing.
