Objectives

To foster network and partnership on smart city development

To adopt the ASCN TOR and MNE Framework

To share knowledge, experience, and best practices in smart city development

Rationale

ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN) was established by the ASEAN Member States (AMS) at the 32nd ASEAN Summit in April 2018 as a cooperative platform towards the common goal of smart and sustainable urban development through digital technology and innovation. The ASCN aims to synergize development efforts, share best practices, catalyze opportunities for sustainable development, and build capacity. The ASCN meeting was inaugurated by Singapore in 2018 and was planned to meet annually to discuss progress on each city’s action plan, launch new projects, and explore new opportunities with ASEAN’s external partners. As Thailand is the ASEAN Chair in 2019, Thailand is delighted to host various ASCN events in 2019 with an aim to promote ASEAN smart city development domestically and internationally. The ASCN Annual Meeting, which is the part of ASCN Conference and Exhibition 2019, will be held in August 2019 followed by ASCN showcase at the important cities of Thailand, and this smart city year will be completed with Digital Thailand Big Bang 2019 in October. The events serve as a forum for exchange of information and best practices, seek synergistic collaboration on smart city development, as well as concluding ASCN Terms of Reference (TOR) and ASCN Monitoring and Evaluation (MNE) Framework which will be noted at the 35th ASEAN Summit in November 2019.
