Västerbottens Handelskammare, which hosts the HKCCSE Northern Chapter, arranged a seminar on innovation within the transport system earlier in May. HKCCSE vice chairperson and Corporate Communications Director at railway operator MTR Nordic, Åsa Elm, shared experiences from Hong Kong where MTR works with a city development concept where public transport (metro) is integrated with housing, community service and commercial development from the start. A question was if this concept is applicable in Sweden and in Umeå and the answer would be yes, with local adaptations of sizes of the projects and to Swedish public procurement policies. The seminar also covered innovation in other modes of transports such as electric airplanes.
