A new Handbook which anticipates future needs of city users in Malaysia, also considers the importance of holistic ‘smart city’ planning alongside technology, innovation and partnership opportunities.
The Smart City Handbook Malaysia was commissioned by the UK Government in partnership with Arup and Think City. It is part of the co-operation between the two governments on smart city development to address economic, social and environmental issues.
With the Ministry of Housing and Local Government Malaysia leading initiatives to meet urban priorities and ensure a better quality of life through smart city development, the Handbook will support the Ministry and other key stakeholders in strategising, planning and implementing initiatives.
The Smart City Handbook Malaysia outlines the current smart city landscape and suggests how the country can accelerate its digital development and adapt best practices from the UK. It also identifies the types of commercial and partnership opportunities that are available between the UK and Malaysian governments, private sector and research stakeholders.
