Smart Ur­ba­na­tion 2017: A Sino-In­dia con­fer­ence on ‘Smart Cities’

Electronics Bazaar - - Industry News -

The ‘Smart City’ is a rel­a­tively new con­cept for Indians, but in China, this idea has al­ready at­tained ma­tu­rity. This has pre­sented In­dian cities with a chance to adopt smart city so­lu­tions that have al­ready been tried and tested across China, a coun­try with sim­i­lar so­cio-eco­nomic con­di­tions and pop­u­la­tion den­si­ties. For Chi­nese elec­tron­ics play­ers, the nascent In­dian smart city mar­ket of­fers vast op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­pan­sion.

ASAPP Info Global Group and the In­dia China Eco­nomic and Cul­tural Council, in part­ner­ship with the Smart Cities Council In­dia, re­cently or­gan­ised the fourth edi­tion of the Smart City Sum­mit in New Delhi. Over 1,500 global and na­tional pol­i­cy­mak­ers, fi­nanciers and tech­nol­o­gists came to­gether to stream­line the ex­e­cu­tion plans of the Smart City con­cept in In­dia.

Amongst the global play­ers, Chi­nese firms showed keen in­ter­est in fi­nanc­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion of their in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions for our smart cities. This is be­cause ser­vices that are cur­rently cater­ing to smart cities in China can be eas­ily im­ple­mented in In­dia in the fu­ture, with a lit­tle cus­tomi­sa­tion.

Amanda Fan Hongjun, the gen­eral man­ager of the lead­ing gas sen­sor man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany, He­nan Han­wei Elec­tron­ics Co. Ltd, aims to pro­vide smart gas de­tec­tion so­lu­tions in the fu­ture smart homes across In­dia. She says, “Our com­pany ini­ti­ated busi­ness re­la­tion­ships in In­dia 10 years ago. We are the only listed com­pany in China for gas de­tec­tion sys­tems. We of­fer ma­tured so­lu­tions in city gas de­tec­tion and se­cu­rity sys­tems. We feel that our ma­tured con­cept will find the most ac­cep­tance in the In­dian mar­ket, com­pared to other mar­kets across the world.”
