Getting Ready for Digital Cities
Chile is getting ready to host the most important conference on Digital Cities to showcase successful international experiences and case studies.
We are talking about the XVI Edition of the Ibero-American Meeting of Smart Cities, which is organized by ASIET (the Interamerican Association of Telecommunications Companies) and will be held on 4-5 November.
The world’s most innovative Smart City initiatives will be presented during this meeting, as well as best practices in the use of technology for improving citizen’s quality of life.
Pablo Bello, ASIET’s Executive Director, noted that this event is defined by its human contribution “in debating how smart cities actually prove they are smart when they benefit the population and place them at the center of Latin American development.”
Bello also noted that connectivity, telecommunication services and access infrastructure play a key role in any smart city, and that these require “political leadership that will drive the use of ICTs for improving people’s quality of life.”
All of these topics will be analyzed and debated during the upcoming meeting in Chile.
