Innovative Solutions for the Public Sector Found in Ho Chi Minh City


Apr 3, 2024

Ho Chi Minh City recently launched a program aimed at finding and supporting innovative and applied startup projects to enhance management capacity in the public sector. The first edition of the program, known as Gov.Star, was announced by the Department of Science and Technology of Ho Chi Minh City on April 3. This program seeks innovative models and solutions that utilize technology and digital transformation to address issues in managing public affairs activities within various departments and People’s Committees in the city.

Gov.Star is open to individuals, project groups, and businesses with innovative solutions that can be applied to public affairs management within state agencies, schools, hospitals, and other institutions. Selected models and solutions will receive financial support and incubation to further develop and introduce them for practical pilot implementation in departments and localities.

The selection process for Gov.Star involves four phases, including project introductions, training in presentation skills, preliminary evaluation rounds, and incubation for selected projects. The program aims to connect project teams with state management agencies to better understand needs, refine technology solutions, and enhance business models for successful implementation.

Director Nguyen Viet Dung emphasized the importance of using technology to solve specific problems within departments and localities, rather than focusing solely on the technology itself. The program provides businesses with the opportunity to improve their technology solutions by addressing practical needs in the public sector. By successfully implementing projects in one area, there is potential for expansion to other wards and communes in Ho Chi Minh City.

Individuals and organizations interested in participating can register through the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City. The program aims to create opportunities for businesses to reach potential customers and implement their solutions effectively within the public sector. Through the Gov.Star program, innovative projects have the potential to make a significant impact on public affairs management in the city.
