Both China and Chile have a growing market of smart solutions. The target regions in China are Hebei and Guangdong. Hebei province in Northern China is home to the cities of Zhangjiakou, a 2022 Winter Olympics site, and Xiong’an, the future sustainable city and heart of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei metropolitan region integration. The other target region, Guangdong province, is one of the major economic regions of Asia. Home of cities like Guangzhou and Shenzhen and bordering Hong Kong, Guangdong is a bustling market of over 100 million people.

Chile, an economic forerunner, is the most stable and friendly environment for businesses in South America. With mining still remaining the largest industry, Chile provides many opportunities for clean tech and circular economy solutions. In addition, demand for smart mobility, energy and urban planning solutions.
