APEC CEO Summit 2012 - EY - Russia


Bill Hutchison, Executive Director,
Center for Smart Cities Innovation,
EY, Session moderator.

Making cities fit for business, their people and the planet

This discussion will focus on how cities develop and expand (what are the main forces behind urbanisation?), and the necessity for their infrastructure to meet the increasing needs of both business and society.

Urbanisation occurs naturally as individuals and companies try to reduce the time and expense of commuting and transportation while improving opportunities for jobs, education, housing and transportation. This process is closely linked to other trends such as industrialisation and modernisation.

How far will urbanisation extend and what influence will it have on the environment and society? One of the central challenges is to make the cities of the future ecologically viable.



Vladimir Androsik, Chairman of APEC National Business Center, and Oleg Danilin, EY’s partner, discussed the importance of the APEC CEO Summit and expectations of its participants in RBC’s Dialogue. Watch video.
