Singapore's becoming a smart city depends on the government's well-planned planning and the government's active involvement in the market, which situation is completely different from Hong Kong, the urban planner says.


MapKing. com Chief Executive Officer, Stanley, Ng Wing-fai arrived an assembly at Hong Kong Shue Yan University about the smart city and logistic. He said Singapore’s government can become a smart city, which relied on government policies.


Ng said “Singapore is a "strong government", which means that the government would use policies to achieved its goals. For example, the Singapore government had acquired all bus companies for easy management. Recently, the Singapore government has launched a bus mobile app booking service for passengers during off-peak hours. The biggest feature of the plan is that passengers could get on and off at any bus stop in the pilot area. The bus does not necessarily follow the scheduled route, but the trip was planned according to the real-time needs of passengers.”


On the contrary, the Hong Kong government and Singapore's policies are very different because the Hong Kong government would not intervene in the market, he said.


“The Hong Kong government allowed the market to develop freely, resulting in slow development,” Ng said.


Although the Hong Kong government launched the "Hong Kong Smart City Blueprint" in 2017, the development is very difficult.


“Blueprint has made short-, medium and long-term recommendations in six major areas, such as “Smart Mobility”, “Smart Living”, “Smart Environment”, “Smart People”, “Smart Government” and “Smart Economy”. However, becoming a smart city requires the cooperation of the Hong Kong government, business, and the public, which were the big challenge in Hong Kong, Because the Hong Kong community still does not understand and familiar with the concept of the smart city,” Ng said.


MapKing is a Hong Kong-based company, it serviced Asia-Pacific companies, and focusing on smart life, transportation, and logistics applications. Ng company’s clients included Apple and Google, as well as SF Express and cross-border transportation. Moreover, Ng is a professional urban planner.
