All Singapore Initiatives

Smart Cities

Singapore’s Smart Nation Initiative, launched in 2014, is yielding results and Singapore awarded as Smart City of 2018 at Smart City Expo World Congress. Another valuable trophy for Singapore was a research done by Juniper  putting Singapore on first place globally when measuring citizens mobility, healthcare, public safety and productivity.

Singapore’s ambitions do not stop here, and thanks for commitments from all levels, The Red Dot ecosystem is constantly looking for new innovative solutions to improve the livelihoods of its citizens. This naturally creates interesting opportunities also for Nordic companies.
