How the “new normal” is going to change the way our cities function? What are some smarter and more inclusive solutions to rebuild our economy and urban society?

Join CDIA’s urban development experts for a dialogue about how we can optimize technology to accelerate economic recovery and make our cities more sustainable and resilient in the post pandemic era.

You will hear about some of the best examples of smart urban solutions available in Asia and the Pacific – and learn about some CDIA infrastructure projects that have helped many cities in the region become more livable and climate resilient.
