A signing ceremony for an agreement between the Tien Giang Provincial People’s Committee in the Mekong Delta and Zalo, regarding the deployment of public administration and e-administrative services, took place within the framework of a conference held on April 13 at the Tien Giang Provincial Conference Center on implementing the “Building My Tho into a Smart Urban Area in 2017-2020” project.

In attendance was Mr. Tran Thanh Duc, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee, Ms. Le Thi Kim Xuyen, Director of Zalo’s 4.0 Project, and many officials of all levels. 

Developing e-government is one of the matters Tien Giang province is focusing on in building an intelligent urban model, along with surveillance cameras, smart traffic networks, smart education, and smart tourism.

Local people can access zalo.me/hcctiengiang or search for “Tien Giang Province Public Administration Portal”. Existing services include document search by receipt code or QR code and latest news on the socioeconomic situation, administrative reform, and new policies in the province.

Other services in smart urban planning, such as smart travel, smart camera, smart traffic, smart education, and bus maps will be integrated into Zalo in the future.

Building a smart city poses the challenge of local people being able to keep pace with technological development. Mr. Tran Van Dung, Director of the province’s Department of Information and Communications, said Vietnam’s IT system is developing very well, especially its broadband infrastructure and the greater use of smartphones. Interaction with the government and utilizing information systems that benefit the people is becoming increasingly straightforward.
