Speaking at a seminar held in HCM City, Jan Vanpaavuori said that smart cities used innovative solutions to energy, environment, digitalisation, transportation and habitation to make everyday life easier.

“The fast urbanisation and dynamic modernisation process in Viet Nam has increased demand for energy efficiency, smart transport and modern city infrastructure. This enormous growth potential makes Viet Nam a very interesting partner in the Smart City area,” he said.

Vanpaavuori said Finland had invested a great deal in demand-driven innovations and new business solutions, assisted by forward-thinking companies

While solutions can be complex and involve several fields, the focus is on smart and energy-efficient buildings, transport solutions, low-emission energy systems and intelligent city infrastructure like smart grids, heating and cooling, transportation and waste- and water-management systems.
