Korea is a living example of how this can be achieved. The country is recently focusing on smart city policies and projects that are integrated with world-class ICT. Developing countries have a lot to learn from Korea as it has overcome the ruins of the Korean War and achieved rapid economic growth since 1960s.Smart Cities is one of the themes of the Korea Innovation Week this year. Come and join the activities to learn more about recent sectoral innovations and Korean experience in this realm.
