Smart Cities in Southeast Asia
During the ASEAN Summit last March 2018, Singapore’s Prime Minister proposed an ASEAN Smart Cities Network initiative (ASCN) – a proposal which was approved by all members of the bloc. The primary goal of the ASCN is to improve the lives of ASEAN citizens, using technology for smart and sustainable living.
Below are three cities of the Southeast Asia which are already in the process of becoming Smart Cities.
Hanoi has been working on its smart city planning since 2016. This city aspires to be a green, culturally-rich, civil and modern city with sustainable development to create a better life for its inhabitants by 2030. Hanoi’s Smart City Action Plan includes the establishment of a Smart Operations Centre which will contain a number of functional hubs, including a support centre for the city’s IT staff, a data analysis centre and a centre for traffic supervision, traffic control, and crime prevention. This city has now one of the fastest gross domestic product growth indexes in the world
