Moscow to test and integrate new smart city technologies

Jonathan Andrews spoke to Andrey Belozerov, Senior Advisor on Strategy and Innovations to the CIO of Moscow, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where he outlined future plans for Moscow’s smart city capabilities

In the last five years Moscow has laid the foundations for a smart city, mainly focusing on e-government and management services, yet is still lacking a formal smart city strategy. Is this something you are working on?

With a US$600 million annual budget, we invested in ICT infrastructure development and m2m projects, e-healthcare and e-education, public services delivery, citizen engagement and much more–all solutions that now are included in the smart city concept.
