The central coastal city of Da Nang is making strides towards turning itself into an eco-smart urban area, a hub for startups and innovation, and one of the most liveable cities in Asia by 2045 under its smart city development project announced at a conference on April 10.


According to Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Le Trung Chinh, the project is being carried out to realise the Politburo’s Decree No.43/NQ-TW on the city’s development until 2030 with vision to 2045.

It is deemed as a motive for Da Nang city to mobilise all resources to branch out local socio-economy in the future, he said, adding that it will build the smart urban area to be comprehensively connected with ASEAN smart city networks.

At the conference, various issues were discussed among participants, including e-government and smart cities, recommendations for smart city development in Da Nang, orientations for smart city development, and the Viet Nam ICT Index.

Deputy Minister of Construction Phan Thi My Linh spoke highly of Da Nang’s efforts in building itself into a smart city with sustainable development.

As the building of a smart urban area is a complex task, she asked local authorities to join hands with the Ministry of Construction and competent agencies to implement the project.

On the occasion, the Viet Nam Association of Information Processing presented a certificate of merit to the local People’s Committee, in recognition of its decade-long leading position on the Viet Nam ICT Index (2009-2018).

The Department of Information and Communications and its partners inked an agreement on building works for the city’s smart urban project.

Various exhibitions were held on the sidelines of the conference, featuring smart solutions of international and domestic corporations.
