Save the date! “Italy-China: Smart Cities & Digital Transformation Dialogue” Rome, 22 March!

Smart Cities and Digital Transformation Dialogue
– Italy and China –
How to Make Cities Better Connected and More Intelligent
Friday, 22 March 2019


The world embraces the wave of development of smart cities in an era where new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and big data, are set to revolutionize industries and people’s daily life. Building smarter cities for their citizens has stayed one of the priorities for numerous national and local governments in the world. From a business perspective, smart cities will be a giant earner in the years to come. By 2023, the global market of smart cities is reportedly expected to reach 717.2 billion U.S. dollars, that is some 634 billion euros or 4.8 trillion yuan.


Both Italy and China set ambitious goals for smart city development and have so far made tremendous efforts. As a result, many of their cities climb in global smartness rankings. Rome was not built in a day, so are smart cities. While addressing some common challenges of developing smart mobility, health, governance or living environment, Italy and China have much to share, exchange and cooperate.意大利和中国都为智慧城市发展制定了雄心勃勃的目标,迄今为止做出了巨大努力。结果是,两者的许多城市都在全球智慧城市排名中攀升。罗马不是一天建成的,智慧城市也是如此。面对发展智慧交通、智慧医疗、智慧政府管理或智能生活环境等的共同挑战,意大利和中国有很多可以分享、交流和合作。

We believe that smart cities will be one of the most promising areas for Italy and China to jointly work on, not least, as the bilateral ties are boosting. The exclusive high-level event, schedule on March 22 in Rome, will take place in the margin of Chinese leader’s state visit to Italy, aiming to contribute to more successful Italy-China cooperation.

我们相信,智慧城市将成为意大利和中国未来最有前景的合作领域之一,尤其是意中关系逐步加强的背景下。 3月22日将在罗马举行的这个独家高级别会议将在中国领导人对意大利进行国事访问的重要时刻举行,我们希望它能为促进意中更成功的合作做出贡献。

The event will bring together high-level policymakers with representatives from Italian and Chinese cities and industries to showcase their best practices, as well as the businesses that are designing or are already providing smart city applications and solutions.
