ĐÀ NẴNG — The central city of Đà Nẵng has invited local residents, tourists and foreigners living in the city to offer ideas and suggestions for developing Đà Nẵng as a ‘smart city’.

Vice director of the city’s information and communication department Trần Thạch said local residents can visit the page gopy.danang.gov.vn or switchboard 20361022 to submit their plans or solutions for a smart city design from March 10 to April 10.

Thạch said the department will collect and select possible ideas and plans to host a dialogue on the feasibility of projects in late April

Many ideas from local people and tourists posted on the page had been either turned into reality or planned for the coming years, including a double-decker bus route for tourists, a flower road in the Sơn Trà Mountain, international kite competition on beach, digitalisation of items at public museums, adventurous entertainment services and the decoration of manhole covers with colourful paintings.

The gopy.danang.gov.vn was launched in 2016 in order to get feedback on city services from the local community in urban, environmental, administrative and tourism-related services.

The page had already received 600 opinions and complaints from local residents and tourists, of which 98 per cent were resolved within seven days.
