Set to be the country’s first smart urban area model, the city now accommodates more than 20,000 people living and working on a site of 43ha. 
QTSC Director Lam Nguyen Hai Long said the city is fully equipped with housing, restaurants, schools, medical stations, businesses and entertainment areas. 
In 2016, QTSC digitalised its technical infrastructure via asset management system GIS and tools to manage data and update infrastructure information regarding electricity and water supply, wastewater, greenery and land. 
The city has used software to track vehicle registration plates and recognise faces, equipped offices with automatic Smarthome systems, opened a farming lab using technological advances and adopted public lighting management software capable of saving 35 percent of energy and adjusting light intensity based on weather. 
It spends nearly 10 billion VND on smart technology each year, partly funded by firms based in the city. 
Next year, QTSC will continue using technologies to build smart offices, automatic irrigation and corporate internal governance system.
Founded on March 16, 2001, QTSC has attracted 150 ICT companies (49 foreign and 91 domestic ones), and 33 investors who have been completing infrastructure to serve local needs. It has become an attractive destination for those who want to seek investment and cooperation opportunities in IT industry.
