NDO/VNA - The Central Highlands province of Lam Dong hosted a ceremony on December 25 to announce the project “Building Da Lat into a Smart City” in the 2018-2025 period.

This was one of activities celebrating the 125th establishment anniversary of Da Lat city.

Lam Dong Vice Chairman Phan Van Da said the project’s objective is to build Da Lat into a smart city by applying information-telecommunication technology and other means in a bid to improve the lives of local residents, better the operation efficiency of the municipal administration, promote the city’s comprehensive and sustainable socio-economic development and enhance its competitiveness edge.

The building of Da Lat into a smart city will be based on four major pillars: management, the life, the environment and economy.

The project will focus on different fields such as e-government, urban planning and land management, smart lighting system, public Wi-Fi system, tourism information, hi-tech agriculture, e-learning system, e-medial record, smart parking, and e-transport tickets.

Accordingly, the province will pilot a Tourism Information Portal, City Planning Information Portal, Smart Lighting System and Public Wi-Fi System as part of its plan to construct Da Lat into a smart city.

Da Lat is one of the country’s first cities to build themselves into mart cities. It now ranks 3rd out of 63 provinces and cities nationwide in terms of applying IT in building e-government.
