Hong Kong is one of the pioneers of smart city development in Asia. Since 1998, the Hong Kong Government has adopted various ICT projects, with policies like the Digital 21 Strategy to more effectively serve the varied needs of the Government, businesses, and citizens through electronic channels. Over the decades, the Government has made considerable efforts in building Hong Kong into a smart city, as demonstrated in projects like Energizing Kowloon East, which is on its way to becoming a "Smart City district" and having recently launched a demonstration of a "Smart Parking" mobile app in July 2016. Hong Kong is a robust knowledge-based economy and has the full potential to be developed into a world-class smart city, with a professional and efficient workforce, enterprising entrepreneurs, a high-quality education system, sound legal and banking systems, and last but not least, a stable government capable of managing various infrastructure and development projects. Smart city should be people-centric. It should be built upon the needs of the people and the benefits should be seen and felt by residents and visitors.
