Taipei City Mayor Ke Wen-je was in attendance and stated that Taipei City Government will spare no efforts in supporting the development of industries in the domain of smart applications while also promoting international smart city collaborations which have the capabilities of creating business opportunities in these industries.

Mayor Ke remarked that foreign and domestic VIPs had traveled great distances to attend the event and collectively participate in the 2018 Smart City Summit & Expo. The vision for Taipei City is to create a “livable city;” therefore, they are actively making use of smart technologies and gradually promoting the “smart city” in order to increase service standards in Taipei City and satisfy the needs of residents.

Mayor Ke added that Taipei City Government has been paying close attention to the following five major domains: smart transportation, smart public housing, smart medical treatment, smart education, and smart payments while also closely observing information security in order to act as a platform for the integration of official, academic, and civil resources. With a “from the inside to the outside and from public to private” type of strategy, development in fields such as self-driving cars, smart parking, networked hospitals, and smart street lights can be realized, and the experience of successfully developing a Taipei into smart city can then be spread to the rest of Taiwan and be exported internationally.
