We joined this round table conference and meet with great speakers @ French Talk – Smart Cities, where they will present various approaches on the use of data for the development of smart cities in the context of Malaysia & France, to open a multi-cultural dialogue on those issues.

We found very interesting the various position and development of smart city frameworks and developed projects by different cities in Malaysia and France.

My Evolution CMO’s René Arbefeuille, a strong advocate of Smart City paths, with several initiatives already started in Malaysia for Johore state and Kuala Lumpur city was keen to share some of his experience in the Smart City benefits and drivers.
