Innovative Solutions for the Public Sector Uncovered by Ho Chi Minh City

The Department of Science and Technology of Ho Chi Minh City recently announced the launch of Gov.Star, a program aimed at discovering and nurturing innovative solutions that leverage technology and digital transformation to address challenges in public sector management. Eligible individuals, project groups, and businesses with applicable solutions are encouraged to apply for the program.

Selected models and solutions will receive financial support and incubation to further develop and implement them in practical settings. The Gov.Star selection process involves four phases, where project teams are evaluated based on criteria such as applicability, feasibility for implementation, technology application, creativity, economic efficiency, and social impact.

One of the first projects supported by Gov.Star is the application of Geographic Information System (GIS) for tasks such as granting business licenses and regulating temporary sidewalk use by the District 1 People’s Committee. Through this program, participants can receive training, advice, and support from state management agencies to better understand their needs and refine their technology solutions and business models.

Nguyen Viet Dung, Director of the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City, emphasized the importance of leveraging technology to solve specific problems faced by departments and localities. By doing so, businesses can tailor their solutions to meet these needs more effectively. The ultimate goal of Gov.Star is to promote innovation in public sector management and enhance its overall efficiency and effectiveness through technological advancement.

Interested organizations or individuals can register for Gov.Star through designated focal points within the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City.
