Ha Noi will cooperate with Milan in urban development, focusing on high-tech applications and smart city building, under the World City network, according to Ambassador Bruno Angelet, head of the EU Delegation to Vietnam.

The World City network is an initiative launched by the EU which aimed at promoting the exchange of experience and the best practice on regional and urban development policies between EU cities and non-EU peers.

Mr. Nguyen Duc Chung said Ha Noi will prioritize transport infrastructure development, high-quality personnel training and administrative reform.

IT will be the main tool used in the city construction and development, he said, adding to that, the city is expected to complete a big data system by 2020.

However, the official said, Ha Noi wants to partner with small and medium-sized enterprises of Europe in general and those of Milan in particular, as the city still faces difficulties in building a modern information system.

Ha Noi stands ready to facilitate European investors and wants to cooperate with European architects in building roads and bridges, and upgrading ancient houses, he noted.

Italian Ambassador Cecilia Piccioni said Milan is the sixth largest city in the EU in terms of network infrastructure.

Following President Tran Dai Quang’s visit to Italy in 2016, the World City network is the next step to advance relations between the two countries and their cities, the diplomat said.

Italy and the EU in general hope for more cooperation opportunities with Vietnamese enterprises to build smart and modern cities, the Italian Ambassador noted.
