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

In an effort to enhance management capacity in the public sector, Ho Chi Minh City recently launched a program called Gov.Star. The first 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 find innovative models and solutions that utilize technology and digital transformation to address issues related to managing public affairs activities within departments, People’s Committees, and other entities in the city.

Individuals, project groups, and businesses with innovative solutions applicable to managing public affairs activities at state management agencies, schools, hospitals, and more are encouraged to participate in Gov.Star. Selected models and solutions will receive financial support and incubation to further develop and introduce them to departments and localities for practical pilot implementation.

Through the program, the District 1 People’s Committee has already piloted the application 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 like applicability, capacity for practical implementation, technology application, creativity, economic efficiency, and social impact.

Participants in the program will have the opportunity to receive training, advice, and support to connect with state management agencies to understand their needs better and refine their technology solutions and business models. Director of the Department of Science and Technology in Ho Chi Minh City emphasized that using technology can help solve specific problems for departments and localities provide businesses with an opportunity to tailor technology solutions that meet these needs.

The ultimate goal of Gov.Star is not only fostering innovation but also technological advancement in public sector management that would improve overall efficiency
