It is likely to need approximately USD 2 trillion of overall investments to develop trunk and internal infrastructure, with funding also coming from private investors and overseas companies. In the meantime, a number of world’s majors (e.g. IBM, Cisco, 3M, etc.) have revealed their intention to invest in the country’s smart cities initiatives.
