Gaetan Siew presents the smart city initiative in Mauritius, now centered in the regeneration of the capital city, Port-Louis. The program focuses on adding value to economic activities and resolve city problems such as mobility, energy or water management, among other challenges cities of emerging countries face.

Therefore, it is the backbone of strategy to boost new cultural economic activities and foster a people-centered city. Additionally, Gaetan states that the cultural diversity of Mauritiu’s population is an asset for talent and investment attraction, and to boost the economic activity.
