The Economic Diplomacy Division in the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India is organising the India-Nordics Conclave on Smart Cities from 07- 08 March 2017 in New Delhi in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
The Smart Cities’ Mission of the Government of India has evoked strong interest among the governments and companies of the Nordic countries since they have considerable expertise and technology needed at the city level in areas which are extremely relevant to the Smart Cities Mission: water management, electricity supply, solid waste management, efficient urban mobility and public transport, robust IT connectivity and digitization, sustainable environment etc.
The Conclave is proposed to focus on the area of “Sustainable Technologies”, which would broadly cover the following sectors :
The Conclave will provide the relevant stakeholders from India and Nordic countries the ideal occasion to discuss the most recent innovations, trends, challenges and opportunities in the rejuvenated Indian urban landscape, as also deliberate upon the solutions adopted in the Smart Cities. A major focus of this Conclave will be to provide a platform for collaboration between the proposed Smart Cities and the potential technical urban solution providers from the Nordic countries.
