Save the date! “Italy-China: Smart Cities & Digital Transformation Dialogue” Rome, 22 March!
How to Make Cities Better Connected and More Intelligent
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.
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.
