ĐÀ NẴNG — The central city, in co-operation with the Việt Nam Posts and Telecommunications (VNPT) Group has officially signed an agreement for the ‘smart city’ project over the next two years.
The agreement will help develop information technology (IT) applications in the fields of e-Government, natural resources and environment, agriculture, tourism, traffic and public security over the next two years.
It’s also a next step in the co-operation between Đà Nẵng and VNPT to create a ‘green’ and ‘smart’ city by 2025.
Đà Nẵng was the first city in Việt Nam to launch the e-Government system in 2014.
According to a report from the city, the Đà Nẵng’s e-Government had been used by 225 agencies and 4,000 users.
Vice chairman of the city’s People’s Committee Hồ Kỳ Minh said the city’s IT infrastructure was now available for smart connections among air control, water, garbage, meteorology, and energy agencies. It could also provide earthquake and tsunami warnings, and data on flooding, erosion, sewage management and bridges.
The city will be ready for 4G LTE (Long-Term Evolution) later this year.
Đà Nẵng had provided 1,200 online administration procedures, including one-stop shops, residential management, public transport and water supervision through the e-Government system, while free wireless internet (wifi) services offer a maximum of 20,000 connections at public sites. — VNS
