Le Quoc Cuong, deputy director of the HCMC Department of Information and Communications, said at the award ceremony on December 20 that the HCMC government has introduced a host of smart city applications such as providing planning information, improving security via CCTV networks, and providing flood information.

The ICT Awards 2017 acknowledged achievements in the development of products and services by an individual, and 11 teams, together with eight outstanding ICT students.

This year’s contest lured 67 entries, with most of them being software products and solutions, and value-added services.

These products and services are more commercially viable than those in the previous awards, according to the panel of judges.

Some products and applications such as technology apps on social networks, and mobile apps on Android and iOS platforms may be useful for the smart city development plan of the local government.
