Mott MacDonald Middle East's managing director, Chris Seymour, joins Construction Week Viewpoint to explain why the private sector should welcome more participation from the government on smart city planning.

In a wide-ranging podcast discussion, Seymour also reveals that the engineering consultancy has won a contract to work on the Kuwait Ring Road package.
