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

Ho Chi Minh City recently launched a program to discover and nurture innovative technology-based solutions aimed at improving management practices in the public sector. Known as Gov.Star, the initiative was unveiled by the Department of Science and Technology of Ho Chi Minh City on April 3rd.

The goal of Gov.Star is to find novel models and solutions that use technology and digital transformation to address challenges related to managing public affairs activities within government agencies, People’s Committees, and other local institutions. The program encourages individuals, project teams, and businesses with innovative ideas applicable to public sector management to participate. Selected projects will receive financial support and incubation to further develop and introduce their solutions to departments and localities for practical implementation.

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

Participants in the program will have access to training, advice, and support from experts in 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 government agencies and localities while providing businesses with an opportunity to tailor their solutions specifically for public sector needs.

The ultimate goal of Gov.Star is to create opportunities for businesses to improve their technology solutions while putting them into practical application within the public sector. Interested organizations or individuals can register through designated focal points within the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City. By fostering innovation
