Urbanization in Hong Kong

URBANIZATION

The world’s cities are constantly growing. They attract billions of people and by 2050 more than two in every three people on the planet will live in urban areas. Estimates tell us that around 200,000 people move into cities across the globe each and every day, the same as 140 people every minute. It is by understanding urbanization and focusing on improvements for people that we can create better buildings, better cities and a better world.

Technological disruption drives change and means a faster pace of business and new expectations for ways of working.
