Anyang Mayor Choi Dae-ho participated in the world's largest technology exhibition CES 2020 held in Las Vegas January 7 to 10.
He said, "I am honored to participate in
CES2020, where future generations of technology will be aggregated to
understand the various technology trends of the future. By seeing and learning
the future technology trends, I began to think harder about how to improve the
quality of our citizen's lives."
In line with the era of Industry 4.0 and
with the goal to build the smart city, Anyang City is preparing for a number of
projects such as autonomous driving infrastructure building project and
economic IoT center and smart city integration center operation that are
specially designed for Anyang. The city received the MOLIT Minister's Award for
reinforcing the smart safety network that meets the expectations of citizens,
and just a few days ago, it received the Presidential Award in the local
autonomous management sector.
Choi said, "We have carried out projects
such as BIS and ITS earlier than other cities, and has become the first model
city to operate the control center for the first time in the country based on
the urban infrastructure. This has resulted in having 1,100 public institutions
in Korea and 134 countries visit us."
He also added, "In addition, we believe
that Anyang can establish the brand as a smart city and make the autonomous
driving industry bloom with the opportunities and challenges that autonomous
vehicles will open. I think you will recognize Anyang as a city that is
pursuing bold innovations in the existing relevant field."
Lastly, he added, "Above all, the future of
Anyang that I picture is to be a city where any Anyang citizen can live a happy
life. We will create spaces for many start-up companies and small giants to
make more jobs available, and provide the new dreams and visions to young
