WHAT IS A SMART NATION?

Singapore aims to be the world's first Smart Nation, which taps on technology to improve the quality of lives and increase opportunities for businesses.

It involves pulling together top universities and medical facilities, multi-billion annual research and development (R&D) investments, a fast-growing community of tech start-ups and large pools of investment capital.

The Smart Nation concept aims to make use of the networks of sensors and smart devices to ensure living in a sustainable and comfortable manner and to connect people together more easily.
