CJK Smart City Initiatives and Need for Cooperation

This session brings together smart city organization representatives from China, Japan and Korea to give a comprehensive overview of each country’s smart city development, unveiling the canvas based on which trilateral cooperation can be established over the months ahead. Recognizing the broad range of shared opportunities for smart city development in the sub-region, this session seeks to clarify the role and responsibilities of national associations in supporting cities, identify areas of overlapping needs and priorities among cities transnationally, and initiate the discussion necessary to co-formulate innovative ideas in trilaterally shaping and carrying out joint projects.

Local Government Initiatives in CJK

This session aims to share cases of best practice in key cities across China, Japan, and Korea, to better understand sub-regional trends in smart city development. Through the select set of presentations, cities will take a step closer to discovering tangible opportunities for trilateral cooperation through joint projects. Representative cities from the sub-region will introduce their ongoing and planned smart city initiatives, along with how they envision a sub-regional “smart city forum” could contribute to successful implementation across national borders. Possible areas for joint projects identified through the discussion will set the stage for further dialogue over the months leading up to the CJK Smart City Forum in 2021.

Synthesizing CJK Smart City Initiatives with the Private Sector

This panel discussion aims to shed light on the private sector’s activity in smart city
development across China, Japan, and Korea, and identify foreseeable joint projects in
key areas. The discussion will focus on ICT trends pioneered by solution providers in the
sub-region, and seek to identify short- and long-term areas in which cities can co-
develop and co-implement cross-border smart city projects. Representatives from solution providers active in the whole of the sub-region will discuss the trajectory of smart city development in the sub-regional content, ways in which local governments can elevate their smart city development through international PPPs, and visions of a society with transnationally integrated public services through ICT.
