The term smart city in current context looks into cities that use information, communication technologies, resilient and sustainable construction methods, utilities and real estate development to be intelligent and efficient in use of resources to gain the bottom line of cost and energy savings whilst improving service delivery and quality of lifestyle.

 

The smart city concept in Malaysia is gaining more prominence and attention when government allocated RM230 billion for development expenditure under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10 MP).

 

According to  Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, World Population Prospects: The 2010 Revision and World Urbanization Prospects, the urban annual growth from 2015-2020 is estimated to increase by 2.08% in Malaysia, adding more to the already sizeable population.

 

This would mean more integrated, massive, socialized, and higher-efficiency production and consumption will take place. Meanwhile, it also means higher resource requirements and more complicated city management and social relation. In coming future, cities around the globe will increasingly play part in climate change strategies as these locations are interplayed with increase of population. Planners of smart cities has to work on the current issues of congestion, transportation, infrastructure development, ongoing construction, green technology management and city-wide-country-wide connectivity through best ICT plan in order to mitigate these issues whilst managing the urban population increase.

 

In the 10th Malaysian Plan (10 MP 2011-2015), Kuala Lumpur ranked 79 out of 130 cities under the Economist Intelligence Unit survey on liveability in year 2010. Major initiatives have been identified under the national key results areas (NKRAs) to address this, particularly on combating crime and improving urban public transport. Liveability, however,  encompasses a broader concept, and initiatives to create attractive public spaces, nurture a uniquely  internationally relevant arts and culture scene, and provide a rich mix of leisure activities will create a distinctive urban character for the Greater Kuala Lumpur and set example to other upcoming cities in Malaysia

 

The goal of the Smart City in Malaysia is to improve everything from energy use to healthcare, education, traffic and shopping by doing it "smart" with the help of ICT. The path is set, the routes are made and now Malaysia is taking meticulous steps to ensure each and every step towards the development of smart cities in each state is done in accordance to the city’s economic growth and socio-economy maturity.The Greater KL and Smart City Summit by ASLI will revisit the starting point of this modern revolution and educate executive delegates on what has been transpiring in several key cities in Malaysia. This will be a one stop platform that will encapsulate our government‘s vision, cutting edge issues, strategic solutions and pertinent studies of the smart cities in Malaysia.
