ICT technologies can play a vital role in integrating businesses and people’s lifestyles through user-and-eco-friendly smart city services and solutions. Therefore, smart city development will be a key component of the future construction, tourism and renewable energy sectors of Pakistan.
Both organizations aim to form long-term cooperation on smart and safe tourism destination development across architectural planning and construction execution phases by harnessing key technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, AI, IoT, Data Center Facility & Solutions, Intelligent Security solutions, Smart PV Solutions, etc.
The goal of this MoU is to build: 1.) a state-of-the-art smart destination to attract citizens and tourists from the rest of the world and Pakistan, and 2.) establish a partnership for renewable solar power plant development.
The use of key smart city services and ICT infrastructure solutions development in such projects would enable the development of local innovation ecosystem, nurture Talent, co-create digital experiences, and empower self-sustainable cost-effective energy solutions.
