of smart city is a long-term project, so we should promote the construction of
smart city with a pragmatic attitude and innovative spirit. We have seen that

According to Xiao Yaping, Director of China Computer Users Association and
Executive General Secretary of China Urban Informationization Promotion Forum,
urban population amounts to over 600 million in more than 660 cities, and the
economic aggregate created by cities have become the major part of China's
economy. With the acceleration of China's urbanization, urban systems such as
water, electricity, transportation, health care, education have borne heavy
burdens, and the urban administration faces a series of problems. Thus, the
informationization is an effective means to enhance urban administration and
create happy and harmonious urban live.

Smart city gathers and gives full play to the wisdom through various channels
and mechanisms to provide strong support for economic and social development.
The concept of smart city is increasingly recognized by the majority of the
cities in recent years, and there have been hundreds of cities proposing and
launching the projects of smart city construction currently. This forum aims
to publicize and demonstrate the achievements of the majority of cities for
promoting the smart city construction; to explore the regular pattern of smart
city construction; to summarize and exchange the experience for smart city
construction; to create the road for smart city construction with Chinese
characteristics and in line with China's actual situations; to strengthen the
collaboration and interaction between manufacturers and cities; to promote the
overall process of China's smart city construction. Xiao Yaping also said that
a lot of scenic spots were overcrowded during this National Day Golden Week,
and the future smart city construction will play a larger role in relieving
this situation. The construction and promotion of the smart city will greatly
facilitate our production and life, and the theme of this forum is determined
as "Wisdom Boosts the Dream of China".
