Hong Kong government officers are relatively conservative to apply new technology in developing a smart city, says an urban planner.


Hong Kong government has launched "Smart City Blueprint" since 2017, aimed to improve the living standard of citizens and build a world class smart city, however, the project has been criticized as conservative and regressive.


"Singapore has a strong and mighty government so they lead Hong Kong in developing smart city," Stanley Ng, CEO of MapKing said during the talk held at Shue Yan University.


Ng said Hong Kong government has less accountability so the progress of smart city development would lag behind.


He also said singaporean government is more flexible, therefore the officials are more willing and open to communicate with the innovative industry.


Ng said Singapore has launched "On demand bus" project, which the government took over all the buses and managed the bus system with big data.


However, he said it is impossible for Hong Kong to execute that because there are several bus companies in the market and Hong Kong government is just a stakeholder.


"Hong Kong do not need to follow the step of Singapore," Ng added. He said Hong Kong and Singapore have different market structures, both of them have their own strengths in smart city development, for example the "Smart street light" project help provide real-time traffic updates in Kowloon.
