Concept

Smart cities and inclusive urban development are much in demand in Thailand and other Southeast Asian nations facing increasing problems in urbanization such as traffic jams due to rapidly surging urban population, as well as air pollution, waste disposal, and shortage of quality housing available to the middle-income group. According to the US research firm Frost & Sullivan, the global smart city market is estimated to reach $ 2 trillion by 2025, with fastest growth expected in the Asia and Pacific region where political and economic conditions are expected to stay relatively stable.

Last July, “ASEAN Smart Cities Network” was launched in the region and 26 cities of the member nations were selected for pilot smart city projects, including Chonburi, Bangkok and Phuket of Thailand. In Thailand, hosting the ASEAN Summit this year, smart city development projects will be launched in seven municipalities: Phuket, Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen, Chonburi, Rayong, Chachoengsao and Bangkok under the direction of Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa) of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society Development. The agency in charge of promoting smart city development in Thailand also plans to foster the smart city of Thailand to be among the top ten list in the world by 2036.

Catching up with this momentum, the Nikkei Group will host the forum “Sustainable, Resilient and Innovative Smart City for Inclusive Urban and Rural Development” on November 29, 2019 in Bangkok, together with Sasin School of Management @ Chulalongkorn University.

Now entering the age of MaaS, the popularization of autonomous driving, car sharing and other mobility services is much awaited in Thailand, as much as other parts of the world.

One example is the Bang Sue district development project partnered with Japan International Cooperation Agency, for smartifying the State Railway of Thailand’s Bang Sue station and its surrounding area. This session will discuss comprehensive urban and regional development schemes with smart mobility and transportation, and cooperation among Japan, Thailand, and the Mekong region. The session will also propose the future of mobility innovation to evolve into the interconnected system based on the needs of users, through the advanced smartification of transportation services such as mobility services connected with transportation IC cards and other means of users.
