GFCC President Deborah Wince-Smith was featured in the opening panel of Smart Cities NYC ’17, a four-day expo on the intersection of technology and urban life. Also featured on the panel was GFCC member Dr. Ir. Ahmad Tajuddin Ali, Joint Chairman of the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High-Technology (MIGHT). The event was also another opportunity to continue the conversation from the 2016 Global Innovation Summit in London last November, which included the launch of GFCC’s 10 Global Competitiveness Principles for sustainable and innovative cities.
