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

Ho Chi Minh City recently launched a program called Gov.Star aimed at discovering and nurturing innovative and practical startup projects to improve management capabilities in the public sector. The first iteration of the program was announced by the Department of Science and Technology of Ho Chi Minh City on April 3.

The objective of Gov.Star is to identify novel solutions that leverage technology and digital transformation to address challenges faced by government departments, People’s Committees, and other local entities in managing public affairs activities. This program encourages individuals, project teams, and businesses with unique ideas applicable to state management agencies, schools, hospitals, and more to participate. Selected models and solutions will receive financial support and incubation to further develop their ideas into practical implementations for departments and localities.

The District 1 People’s Committee has already successfully implemented the use of Geographic Information System (GIS) for tasks such as issuing business licenses and monitoring temporary sidewalk usage. The selection process for Gov.Star involves four phases, where project teams are evaluated based on criteria such as applicability, feasibility for practical implementation, technological application, creativity, economic efficiency, and social impact.

Participants in the program will have access to training, advice, and support from experts within the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City to better understand local needs and refine their technology solutions or business models. Director Nguyen Viet Dung highlighted the importance of using technology to solve specific problems faced by government departments and localities while providing businesses with an opportunity to tailor their technology solutions to meet these needs effectively.

Through this initiative, Gov.Star aims to create opportunities for businesses to develop their technology solutions further while putting them into practical use within the public sector setting. Interested organizations or individuals can register through designated focal points within the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City by submitting their project proposals online or contacting directly through email or phone calls.
