The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) will supply a province in Vietnam with US$13 million to build a smart city over the next five years, according to local authorities.

KOICA signed a deal with Thua Thien-Hue Province in the central region to transform the provincial capital of Hue into a smart city with a focus on culture and tourism, the Office of the provincial People’s Committee said on Friday.

The agency will provide $13 million while the province will cover $1.8 million in corresponding capital, the office elaborated, adding that the project to build the smart city will be implemented from 2021 to 2025.

KOICA will help build public governance capacity in tourism toward a vision of sustainable socio-economic development.

Hue City will develop a smart tourism information system and more pedestrian streets, according to the project.

Some of the measures to be taken include the installation of a smart lighting system and surveillance cameras in the park areas along the local Huong (Perfume) River from Da Vien Bridge to Truong Tien Bridge.
