The newly formed Innovation & Technology Bureau of the Hong Kong Government outlined several initiatives in late 2015. They are Smart Cities, Healthy Aging, Re-industrialization, to name a few. Are these initiatives connected in some underlying manner？ And how？
This talk uses several global trends as the framework to connect these dots. Specifically, these global trends include: a) population growth and its patterns; b) rising middle class; c) urbanization; d) resource stress & climate changes; and e) new technologies.
Geopolitical issues will not be considered. The audience will gain a picture of where opportunities and concerns are.
