Ministerial Programme

 

The GSMA’s prestigious Ministerial Programme, held alongside Mobile World Congress, provides a unique platform for the world’s most influential telecommunications leaders to unite and discuss the most pressing issues affecting the future of the mobile industry.

The Ministerial Programme is an invitation only event targeted at senior government and industry representatives.

Paving the Way for Smart Cities

Monday, 27 February, 10:00 – 11:15,  Auditorium B

ministerial-programmeIn the future, cities will be much smarter than they are today. But success depends on a common approach amongst government, city councils and the mobile industry. Early engagement with mobile operators in the planning process means cities can realise the benefits that arise from the operators’ local presence and fully standardised networks, delivering real, long-term benefits to businesses and citizens.

How can the mobile industry help cities develop sustainable and innovative smart city services? And what makes mobile operators strategic partners for smart cities? This session will explore key prerequisites required from industry players to build a successful smart cities strategy.
