The HCMC People’s Committee is expected to approve a plan to build an open data warehouse, serving production and trading of citizens and businesses and assisting startups by the end of this month.
The announcement was made by deputy director of the HCMC Department of Communications and Information Vo Thi Trung Trinh at a meeting of the smart city project management board chaired by deputy chairman of the committee Tran Vinh Tuyen.
