Taiwan has an advantage promoting smart cities, while the public and private sectors should work together to push ahead with digitalization and smart city renewal in the post-COVID-19 era, said Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) this week.

At a side event for the online Smart City Summit and Expo on Tuesday (Sept. 8), Taipei City officials and leaders of local ICT companies exchanged ideas about social distancing rules and smart city initiatives, which can help minimize direct contact and the spread of the virus.

Experts agreed digital transformation is not an option but a necessity, while suggesting the nationwide 5G network, AI, big data, and other new technologies can power the smart cities of the future.
