SDG 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation
Electricity, telephone and internet networks, roads, railways, but also water channels and pipelines: investment in infrastructure is a necessary step in the UN 2030 Agenda to enable the bulk of the world’s population to access the minimum conditions thus enjoying their basic rights.
Hong Kong is now home to 7.4 million and is constantly expanding. That is why the Chinese government has announced an ambitious plan in recent years to promote sustainable mobility.
Starting with rail transport, moving through the city to the construction of a 55-kilometre-long bridge. Hong Kong is now a pioneering city as demonstrated by the ambitious Smart City Blueprint project divided into 6 areas of action: (Quality of Life, Environment, Mobility, People, Institutions and Economy) and 76 major projects portrayed in various ways in BG4SDGs shots.
Among the shots, the 55km-long Hong Kong Zhuhai-Macao Bridge stands out, making it the most impressive in the world not only in length, but also in innovation given the scale and layout of the sea tunnel. The work has united two major economies in Southeast Asia by bringing spaces and opportunities closer together amid the satisfaction of the millions of inhabitants in the area.
