Da Nang, FPT cooperate to build ‘smart’ cityThe central city of Da Nang and FPT, a Vietnamese software giant, inked on April 19 a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on building Da Nang as a ‘smart city’ for the 2018-20 period. Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, Ho Ky Minh, said the MoU would help Da Nang improve administrative reform and transparency for local people, businesses and tourists, and build Da Nang as a ‘liveable’ city in the near future. FPT, who started investment in the city from 2004, has so far employed 2,000 IT engineers from Da Nang to work for the company’s software export department. In 2016, FPT debuted its IT Service Centre, the FPT Complex in Da Nang. Da Nang plans to become a ‘smart city’ by 2020 and a ‘green city’ by 2025.
