Hong Kong's Urban Best Practices Area (UBPA) Exhibition welcomed its 1-millionth visitor today (September 19).

The Deputy Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development (Communications and Technology), Mr Alan Siu, was delighted that the exhibition has reached the one million visitors milestone.

"We are very pleased that the exhibition has been so well received by Expo visitors and that so many people have come to learn more about Hong Kong’s successful experience in using smart card and RFID technologies in daily city life to enhance our living quality and efficiency," said Mr Siu.

"The number of visitors is certainly a direct indicator of the popularity of the Hong Kong's UBPA Exhibition and the record is most encouraging."

"Now that we are approaching the last month of the Expo, we will step up our efforts to maintain a high level of service to the visitors so that they will all have a wonderful and memorable experience in the visit," he added.

Hong Kong's UBPA Exhibition, under the theme of "Smart Card.Smart City.Smart Life", showcases the creative and extensive applications of smart card and RIFD technologies to improve the quality of city life in Hong Kong.
