DA NANG (VNS) — Da Nang officials want to pay for ideas that will improve the city and its tourism.
The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism said it is working with relevant agencies on a plan to buy ideas from people.
Authorities get comments and proposals from the public, mostly on social media, about the city's problems and solutions and ideas to improve Da Nang.
Huynh Duc Tho, the city chairman, has instructed the department to study some of the proposals like building a rose myrtle flower road on Son Tr Peninsula.
Tran Chi Cuong, deputy head of the department, said one initiative is to reward useful ideas.
"It is difficult to put a price tag on an idea," Cuong said.
"What we are trying to do is show our appreciation for people's love for the city."
He said most ideas need extensive research.
The city Department of Science and Technology is drafting a decree about using public funds to recompense innovators, he said. — VNS
