nquiringminds heads east to experience China’s future cities
Tue 18th April 2017
Fresh from a trade trip to India, nquiringminds headed east once again, this time to China as part of a Future Cities Mission initiative. With 200m people set to move from rural areas to cities, and 84 new skyscrapers constructed in 2016, China is experiencing an unprecedented urbanisation drive. While mass migration to cities has raised China’s living standards, infrastructure and services are starting to fail.
Embarking on the tour of four Chinese regions in five days, nquiringminds, which specialises in advanced Internet of Things technologies for smart cities, was promoting collaboration and innovation between UK and Chinese companies, and getting a first-person insight on the solutions needed to ease the strain on China’s new metropoles.
