On 20 November 2010, Hitachi Asia Ltd. launched the “Smart City by Hitachi” exhibition at the Japan Creative Centre (JCC). Inaugurated by Ambassador of Japan, Yoichi Suzuki and Emeritus Chairman of Hitachi, Ltd., Dr. Tsutomu Kanai, it is the first of a series of exhibitions introducing Japan eco technologies.

Jointly organized by Japan Creative Centre and Hitachi Asia, this exhibition will feature the Hitachi Group’s business contributions to achieve a sustainable society. With 2010 marking Hitachi’s 100th anniversary, the exhibition celebrates its strong heritage and illustrates how Hitachi can realize a smart society through smooth integration of an information and control system to optimize three major components – “Energy”, “Water”, and “Mobility”.
