Handbook: Vietnam Smart City
CHECK OUT OUR UPCOMING EVENTS
This handbook was commissioned by FCDO as complementary research to the prosperity programming’s Global Future Cities Programme (GFCP). The prosperity programming is a major UK Government initiative announced in 2015. The Fund contributes significantly to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and implementation of the New Urban Agenda. It is guided by the UK Aid Strategy with the objective of helping promote growth and prosperity in developing middle-income countries.
The prosperity programming offers great opportunities for the creation of mutually beneficial partnerships, and for the growth of business and trade relationships. In the past, the GFCP has been involved in programming in Ho Chi Minh City to help improve public transportation in the rapidly growing city through developing an integrated ticketing system for public transport. GFCP also played a role in the mitigation of floods in Ho Chi Minh City, by developing a Geographical Information System for the drainage system in the city.
FCDO and GFCP, through their targeted interventions, are creating business opportunities in Vietnam for UK exporters who are worldwide recognised leaders in urban innovation. These interventions in technical support and institutional capacity should be enabling factors to allow the easy market entry of UK service providers in the market.
As the British Ambassador to Vietnam, Gareth Ward mentioned in his foreword:
“I trust you will find this resource valuable in providing innovative ideas for building a stronger and more sustainable policy environment for urban growth. This is more important now than ever before.”
