Amid growing interest from domestic and international businesses, Hanoi will create new opportunities for private investors to join public service projects as a way to raise funds for its ambitious smart city development plans. Smart city development shapes up to be one of the most ambitious plans for the capital city Nguyen Duc Chung, Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee, said that the capital is poised to become a smart city based on key technologies of Industry 4.0. To this end, besides state funding, the city will have to raise resources from the business community. “We will reclassify public services towards opening more opportunities for private investors to join in those services they are capable of offering, thus mobilising financial sources to feed the plan,” he said at last week’s Asia-Oceania Computing Industry Organisation (ASOCIO) Smart City Summit 2018 in Hanoi. “In addition, we plan to maximally outsource services related to software … [Read more...] about Hanoi opens doors to smart city future
