HCM City aims for ‘smart city’ status by 2025


HCM CITY — HCM City authorities will continue to resolve flooding and traffic congestion, build major transport works, and streamline administrative procedures to reach “smart city” status by 2030, a city official has said.

Speaking at a recent city People’s Council meeting, Nguyễn Thanh Phong, chairman of the city People’s Committee, said that two transport projects worth more than VNĐ12 trillion (US$521.8 million) have been approved.

With a population of 13 million, HCM City, as the nation’s economic locomotive, contributes 24 per cent of the country’s GDP and 27 per cent of the national budget. — VNS
