SMART CITIES SHOWCASE, 11 - 15 NOVEMBER 2018
Dramatic urbanisation is underway in the ASEAN region. An additional 90 million people are forecast to move to ASEAN cities by 2030. By 2050, urban populations are expected to triple. This growth presents opportunities for Australia, which has experience in providing for the expanding needs of cities confronting urbanisation challenges.
In November 2018, ASEAN 2018 Chair, Singapore, invited Australia to join China, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia, the United States and innovative Singaporean companies to take part in a Smart Cities Showcase as part of the 33rd ASEAN Summits programme.
We took this opportunity to share our expertise in smart cities and sustainability and to promote the AUD$30 million ASEAN-Australia Smart Cities Initiative, announced at the Special Summit in March 2018. We also reaffirmed Australia's support for the ASEAN Sustainable Urbanisation Strategy (ASUS) and presented case studies where Australia has provided relevant assistance to ASEAN countries.
