HONG KONG - Hong Kong is moving at "full speed" to become a "smart city," Chief Secretary for Administration of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) government Cheung Kin-chung said on Thursday.

Cheung, who is acting chief executive as HKSAR Chief Executive Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor is on a visit in Britain, made the remarks when attending the International Conference on Smart Future: A Global Perspective held by Hong Kong Productivity Council.

He said that the SAR government has also completed a study that aims to formulate an overall smart city framework for Hong Kong.

It proposes a strategic framework that covers short-term, mid-term and long-term measures in six key areas that are key components of people's daily lives, namely, mobility, living, environment, people, government and economy.

"We are seeking views from the public and will analyze the comments and suggestions collected before we finalize the smart city blueprint for Hong Kong," he said.

Hong Kong is placing great emphasis on engineering the re-industrialization movement in Hong Kong, he added.

"To achieve this objective, we need a critical mass of local smart industries to work together to advance the value and creativity chains through innovation and technology."

"The government is determined to support the development in the process and strive to promote smart production, attract high value-added technology and encourage high value-added manufacturing processes," said Cheung.
