Ten UK firms with an expertise in connected cities visited South East Asia to pitch their ideas to businesses, investors and government.

The delegation was warmly welcomed by both the Malaysian and Singaporean hosts, reinforcing the close government to government ties with the UK.

Some of the most exciting British businesses developing technologies to improve the way we live and work in cities went to Malaysia and Singapore on a Mission organised by Innovate UK and UK Trade and Investment (UKTI).

The successful joint mission, the first of its kind to the region by British companies, saw businesses showcasing their technologies, including:

  • smart street lighting
  • seamless ticketing
  • intelligent building management
  • intelligent mapping systems
  • intelligent security systems

The UK companies met with:

  • government representatives
  • investors
  • potential customers
  • collaborators

The aim was to form business partnerships in the rapidly developing Connected Cities sector, ultimately helping Malaysia and Singapore achieve their exciting connected cities ambitions.
