The Ministry of Information and Communications, the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham), and the Da Nang municipal Department of Information and Communications jointly organized a business linkage program to lure U.S. businesses and economic groups like Boeing, Microsoft, Meta (Facebook), Google, Intel, UL Solutions to Da Nang.   

Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Information and Communications Le Son Phong said that his city began building the e-government from 2010, and piloting several smart apps in transport, the environment, health, education and food safety and hygiene from 2014.

To successfully implement the smart city model and digital transformation, Da Nang has put forward many important solutions, including strengthening cooperation with both domestic and foreign organizations, groups and businesses.

Adam Sitkoff, executive director from the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) Ha Noi, said that U.S. firms are able to see Da Nang’s potential in digital transformation.

The central city is home to many high-tech parks, concentrated IT parks, software parks in the central region, along with the advantages of human resources and traffic.

It won ASOCIO Smart City Award 2019 by the Asian-Oceanian Computing Industry Organization (ASOCIO), Smart City Award Viet Nam in 2020 and 2021, and also ranked first in Viet Nam’s Digital Transformation Index in these years.

Revenue from the city’s ICT sector enjoys an average annual growth rate of 20 percent.

If Da Nang succeeds in attracting investment capital and support from technology corporations from the U.S. Silicon Valley, the potential for Da Nang to become the region's Silicon Valley will come true./.
