Smart Cities Project Activation – For Malaysia

Smart Cities Project Activation – For Malaysia

In the 11th Malaysia Plan (2016-2020), one of the 5 focus areas to transform public service to be more efficient and productive is to capitalise local authorities for quality service at the local level. Several cities and states have since announced their Smart City initiatives to achieve that goal – e.g Greater KL, Iskandar Malaysia, Smart Selangor, Putrajaya Smart City, Penang, Sarawak State and Malacca. Co-organised With:
Smart Cities Network
Malaysia welcomed a total of 25.9 million international tourists in 2017, second only to Thailand (with 35.3m) in South East Asia. Tourism contributed to RM82B to the country’s revenue. The Tourism Malaysia Integrated Promotional Plan 2018–2020 aims to attract 36 million tourists and RM168 billion in tourist receipts by 2020, boosting the tourism trade.
