As an export countrty, our economy can only grow if we start to produce. So we need to speed up Smart City developments.
“Currently, we are making the transition towards the fourth industrial revelution, with IT and digitization”, says Dezentjé Hamming-Bluemink, Smart Industry and FME chairman. “As a result, production becomes more customized and the business model is being shifted to service rather than sales. Digitization also means we can work faster. But also, even more than before, global competition arises.”
