Emphasizing the difference in synchronous infrastructure development of smart cities, Madame Nga noted that the North Hanoi Smart City project by a joint venture between BRG Group and Sumitomo Corporation is the first major smart city project in the capital, and one of those in compliance with Resolution 52-NQ-TW on smart urban chains for the key economic regions across the country.

Because it is a new and non-traditional project, the investor urgently needs the government and ministries to create a legal corridor and special policies as well as incentives for pioneering units to soon deploy the first smart city, which could create a driving force for the development of many similar ventures in other localities.
Madame Nga suggested that the government and ministries soon release a set of national smart city standards to classify and shape modern urban areas currently being invested in and deployed toward smart cities; build an ICT reference framework for smart cities according to urban characteristics in Vietnam; and also link the construction of smart cities with construction of an e-government.
