The award in the field of smart operation and management was given to Da Nang, Thai Nguyen and Sam Son.

Thai Nguyen won the category of smart public services. Lam Dong won in the field of smart tourism. The smart medical award was given to Da Nang.

In the field of smart environment, Da Nang and Thai Nguyen are attractive cities for start-ups.

The award aims to recognise, honour and encourage cities, organisations and businesses that have made contributions to making cities smarter, more livable, branded, competitive and sustainable.

In addition, the award also encourages businesses to create innovative products and solutions, serving as a channel to connect supply and demand, and co-operate in building appropriate models to accelerate the development of smart cities in Viet Nam.

Over the past five years, with great efforts from the Government, localities and the companionship of technology enterprises, 54 out of 63 provinces and municipalities have been implementing smart cities.

Thirty provinces and cities have approved smart urban development schemes, programmes and plans and 15 provinces and cities have approved information technology architecture and smart city development.

Thirty-eight provinces and cities have deployed Intelligent Operation Centres (IOCs) at the provincial level and 21 provinces and cities have deployed IOC at urban and provincial level. — VNS
