With 12 challenging months behind us and another not easy year in front of us, it is definitely a must to look into the progress done to upgrade KL, Greater KL and Klang Valley with their 8 million population towards the “status” of Smart Cities. The six pillars of the “Smart City Concept” are the Economy, Mobility, Governance, Environment, Living and as the most important; People. A lot has been done to connect this six drivers but much more still need to be done.
Affordable housing has become a daily headline in newspapers and a hot topic in all the round tables, seminars and talks. People of all the different “income groups” must be the central focus on which construct a Smart City which will be the Big Challenge for 2014.
REI Group’s CEO has been invited to share his ideas and takes on this subject. The summary of the outcome and his presentation will be publicly available to all after the conference.
