“Moscow invests heavily in smart solutions and in global rating it trails only such large metropolises as New York. The city’s housing and utility sector includes a system, which manages 22,000 items of communal machinery,” he said.

After the plenary session, Andrei Belozyorov, Emanuele Volpe and Vladimir Shkatov answered the questions of reporters.
