Smart City, a new global company seeking to develop a worldwide network of self-sustained industry townships for knowledge-based companies based on the successful models of Dubai Internet City (DIC) and Dubai Media City, yesterday launched its global corporate identity.

The launch was held at the DIC Community Zone at GITEX Technology Week 2007, the leading information technology industry trade show in the Middle East.

The company said its logo reflects its global network and vast future growth opportunities. All its international projects will incorporate this logo.

A joint venture between Dubai-based Tecom Investments and Sama Dubai, Smart City is currently developing Smart City Malta and Smart City Kochi in India. It is also examining several other locations with a view to developing similar knowledge-based clusters.

Tecom Investments executive chairman Ahmad Bin Byat said: "Smart City promises to make a significant contribution to the development of knowledge-based industries across the world.

"Its projects have the potential to stimulate tremendous growth by opening new development avenues for knowledge-based companies, knowledge workers and local governments."

Smart City Malta, the island's largest ever foreign direct investment, is expected to generate over 5,600 jobs. Smart City Kochi, set to be one of India's largest knowledge-industry parks, has the potential of generating more than 90,000 jobs.
