Hong Kong PKI Forum had been invited to be the supporting organization. The development of Smart City relies on the trusted Government CAs. The event provided a platform to find out how Asia PKI Consortium member countries can leverage on the Mutual Recognition of Electronic Signature Certificates issued by Hong Kong CAs and Guangdong CAs, to facilitate the interoperability between China and Hong Kong.


It was the greatest pleasure for APKIC representatives to witness the first-ever opening of the Hong Kong Pavilion in China Smart City Expo with the presence of the Government Chief Information Officer Ir. Allen Yeung.


In the third day of the Shenyang Expo, members also had a meeting with the Secretary Li Ying and Deputy Secretary Yao Yu from the Shenyang Dashuju Management Bureau and visited China Mobile Liaoning Co., Ltd. to learn about the application of big data in China.



The event was well supported by Chinese Government and CAs from China, Hong Kong, Iran and Japan; as well as experts from global to share the latest development and to promote the electronic ID.
