Can Tho to become Smart City (Vietnam)

Can Tho, is aiming to become the first smart city on the Mekong Delta by 2025. The Department of Planning and Investment is building technical platforms to develop an e-government model, while the Department of Transport has started using IT to manage urban transport services.

Two years ago, Can Tho city signed a cooperation agreement with the Vietnam Posts and Communications Group (VNPT) to develop its smart city project by 2025. Under the project, VNPT has set up a smart city framework system, including an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and smart city solution framework, ensuring that the solutions of all developers can run on this platform.

Can Tho will use the My City app, a mobile platform with a built-in camera system and an intelligent security surveillance, to receive and resolve residents’ feedback on public services. The city will also apply information technology in management of traffic safety; information security and safety; food safety and hygiene; environmental protection, as well as land use management. In addition, intelligent parking systems at tourist destinations and integrated traffic management system, including traffic lights, signs and traffic flow analysis, will be set up.
