With the steady implementation of the “One Belt, One Road” national strategy, the construction industry has ushered in a new development opportunity. Under the policy dividends, the construction industry is able to seize the opportunity and rationalize the industrial distribution to win a better time for development.

At the 2018 China AEC Industry Summit held in Xi'an on June 29, Azman bin Ibrahim, Under Secretary of Policy and International Division, Ministry of Works, Malaysia, said in an interview with the City Construction Channel of, that Malaysia is designing a blueprint called “Smart City.”

He compared the city to the human body vividly, "Like the muscles, the buildings serve as the basic strutting units of the city; like the lungs, the urban parks purify the city; like the blood vessels, the roads transport the city nutrients in all directions; and like the five senses, the urban sensors use high-tech means to achieve information collection and feedback."

At the same time, Malaysia is also planning the Smart Transportation system to use big data to improve the convenience and efficiency of transportation system and traffic system. For example, a payment system can be built in a bus. Through the system, you can know the current capacity of the bus, and use the data to complete a better scheduling. On an APP, you can tell passengers, from A to B, which route is the smoothest, and which route is the most crowded. By these sort of data transferring, the ultimate improvement of efficiency can be realized.
