The Smart City Project

The Smart City

The Binh Duong smart city project was developed on the base of 5 breakthrough programs of the Provincial Party Committee of Binh Duong Province 2016 – 20. Since then, the project aims at bringing together many resources both at home and abroad, aiming at new values of the regional and global economy in the 21st century, putting people and knowledge at the center, taking the linking “smart” cooperation as a guideline for development, reaching a flexible, creative economy, capable of adapting to the changes of the world, in which the model of the Triple Helix (State- University / Institute – Business) is the foundation.

Learning the model from Eindhoven, Binh Duong province, approaches the idea of a Smart City in a unique way, different from the conventional approaches that considers a Smart City to be the place where advanced technologies are applied to solve specific problems. From the perspective of Binh Duong, the concept of a Smart City can be understood as a dynamic, creative and connected ecosystem, in which all elements are constantly improved, innovated and optimized. .

Smart City is operated by 2 Mechanisms (the triple helix and flexible mechanism), 4 Aspects (human, technology, business and foundation elements) and 6 Criteria (ability to connect broadband connection, knowledge workforce, innovation, equal access to digital technology, sustainable development, support – encouragement).
This direction helps Binh Duong to comprehensively develop the community, emphasizing the human factor and the source of knowledge labor, and considers the advanced research and application of science and technology to serve the people and business. This can be considered as a strategic visioning approach of Binh Duong, both meeting the development goals of the province and fitting the general trend of smart communities around the world.

Triple helix

Recently, the Binh Duong Smart City project has achieved fundamental results. The provincial units have actively implemented many new ideas and specific projects with practical efficiency ranging from the New City area to the whole province. The project is strongly contributing to the socio-economic development of Binh Duong province, especially making breakthroughs in integration, expanding international relations, attracting investment partners, and gradually securing Binh Duong’s position into the international stage.
The province is forming a coordination mechanism that is flexible, transparent, and increasingly effective, not only in the overall scale but also in the mode of operating specific projects. 2018 marked an important milestone, when Binh Duong officially joined the World Technopolis Association (WTA) and at the same time with UNESCO, WTA and Daejeon City (Korea) successfully hosting the 20th Anniversary of WTA combined with Global Innovation Forum in the Binh Duong New City.
On November 25th – 26th, 2018 – Binh Duong once again successfully hosted the Horasis Asia Meeting 2018. These two important international events featured more than 50 seminars on global trends and visions, brought more than 20 mayors and leaders of international cities and provinces around the world, 30 university principals, and about 1,000 leaders of corporations and enterprises from more than 60 countries, contributing to raising Binh Duong’s level in the international stage.
