The UCGL Committee of Digital and Knowledge-based Cities, chaired by the City of Bilbao, held its annual event in the city of Liverpool (England) last June. The event took place in the framework of the Connected City Summit and the Councillor for Economic Development, Trade and Employment, Xabier Ochandiano, presented the strategy of Bilbao to achieve a “well connected” city through new information and communication technologies.

In addition, Xabier Ochandiano participated in a round table with Antoine Bidegain, Director General of the Connected Metropolis of Bordeaux; Monique Mukaruliza, mayor of Kigali, capital of Rwanda; and Nuha Eltinay, director of Urban Planning and Sustainable Development of the Arab Institute for Urban Development.
