In particular, smart cities in Vietnam are formed on basic criteria such as smart urban planning, smart economy, smart traffic, smart energy, smart residents, smart community management and smart society. The core ideology in building Vietnam's smart city is to take people as the center towards the goal so that everyone in society can enjoy the benefits and have the opportunity to participate in construction and monitoring of smart city management. So far, the results show that in Vietnam, 44 out of 63 provinces and cities directly under the central government have built smart urban development projects, of which, some localities have initially implemented smart urban construction that achieved many very positive results including Binh Duong province.
