Conclusions are drawn from preceding chapters regarding the capacity of Hong Kong to become a Smart City. A lack of a holistic and comprehensive approach to tackling unsustainability within the city will restrict the ability of Hong Kong to become a truly Smart City in all six elements. Some Smart City initiatives are implemented in one area, but coordination is lacking to implement the measures city-wide. With smart thinking and a focus on People, Place and Planet with planning and design as important drivers and technology as an enabler smart and sustainable cities and communities will become a reality in both existing and new development areas. Positive experiences from the regeneration of Kowloon East could be used to the benefit of the development of Hong Kong as a Smart City, although lessons can also be drawn to further improve implementation of Smart City initiatives in Hong Kong.
