Alibaba, Macau Sign Agreement to Create a Smart City

SHANGHAI – China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba has signed an agreement with the special administrative region of Macau to transform the region into a “smart city” through the use of cloud computing technology applied to tourism and governance, the company announced on Friday.

In a statement, the Jack Ma-led company explained that using the Alibaba Cloud technology, the two parties will collaborate to improve Macau’s IT infrastructure in sectors including transport, health, governance and talent development.

“By leveraging the power of these technologies and connecting resources of different government departments, the project is expected to enhance the model of socioeconomic operation in Macau, expediting the city’s transformation into a smart city,” said O Lam, Chief of Office of the Chief Executive of Macau.

The four-year-long partnership between Alibaba and the Macau government will focus on cloud computing, smart transportation, smart tourism, smart healthcare, smart city governance and talent development during the first phase in 2017-2019.

Among other things, the partnership will build a smart transportation network that will improve management of road, sea and air traffic, “making the most effective use of Macau’s transportation resources.”

Alibaba will also help Macau in its development of smart tourism by using analysis of visitors and providing target consumer marketing tools.
