Report by McKinsey Global Institute: How technology can deliver a better quality of life
 

In a new report from the McKinsey Global Institute, produced in collaboration with the Centre for Liveable Cities in Singapore, it shows that cities across the region can incorporate data and digital technologies into infrastructure and services to solve specific public problems and result in a more liveable, sustainable and productive urban environment.

This report offers an overview to help cities understand the promise and limitations of the new technologies at their disposal, sharing insights into strategies that ASEAN cities can adopt for becoming ‘smarter’ while balancing their own context, challenges and priorities.
