Study Overview

In the 2015 Policy Address, the Government announced that Kowloon East (KE) would be used as a pilot area to explore the feasibility of developing a Smart City. The “Developing Kowloon East into a Smart City District – Feasibility Study” (this Study) was thus commenced to investigate the feasibility in terms of its strategies, challenges, constraints and opportunities. In this Study, we will formulate a smart city framework and an advocacy statement for KE, as well as propose smart city initiatives and their implementation strategy. Through the public engagement, we strive to promote the benefits of smart city development and raise awareness in the community for developing KE into a smart, sustainable and liveable community.

 

Vision

To facilitate co-creation of Kowloon East into a vibrant, smart and sustainable CBD2 of Hong Kong.

 


Programme & Progress

In the beginning of this 18-month Study, our main tasks include reviewing current/ planned smart city initiatives and formulating an overall framework and advocacy statement for developing Kowloon East into a Smart City. We will gauge public views in Stage 1 PE, with the collected views for formulating the proposals and conducting Proof of Concept (PoC) trials.
