(Construction) - The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee has urged all districts to conduct programmes on smart city development.
At the meeting recently, leaders of the HCM City People’s Committee discussed about the implementation of smart city development programmes in all districts. Here were the summeries:
In the first phase of its smart city development, the city selected districts 1 and 12 to pilot the project, and there have been some accomplishments after more than two years. They include application of cutting-edge technologies in administration, and are a crucial foundation for scaling up the project to the remaining 22 districts. The 22 districts need to submit their programmes on smart urban development for approval by next month, he said.
District 1 has built a model intelligent operation centre that integrates eight systems: smart security camera system, smart firefighting system, smart urban administration, smart healthcare, smart education, smart tourism, online public services, and information security operations. For online public services, District 1 has already adopted a non-paper registration process in various sectors such as economy, labour, internal affairs and education.
As part of the city’s smart city development project, District 12 has adopted geographic information system (GIS) solutions for urban planning and environmental resource management. The district has improved administrative operations using administrative document management software, which allows the public to monitor administrative procedures in real time.
