The development of the Smart Cities and Technopoles will leverage digitalization and new technologies.
The eight smart cities will be self-sustained townships.
A Smart City project must:
- be led by a main theme, for example logistics and airport/port related activities, ocean led development and knowledge
- be a large-scale mixed-use development project that is environment friendly, can generate its own resources in terms of energy and water, provide for state-of-the-art connectivity and smart modern transportation
- promote the live, work and play concept
- invest in dedicated space for the development of arts and culture.
Government will come up with a clear roadmap and guidelines for the development of projects under the Smart City concept.
