Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee launched the city’s website as part of the Government’s e-portal at a ceremony on June 14.

The site, which can be accessed via the links tphcm.chinhphu.vn, tphcm.vn, or hochiminhcity.vn, provides official information on the largest economic hub in southern Vietnam.

Built by the Government’s e-portal and the municipal Department of Information and Communications, it will carry latest information on the city’s domestic and foreign affairs with a view to popularizing the city’s images.

A database on the city is also expected to be added to this site in the time ahead.

Vice Chairman of the Government’s Office Le Manh Ha said the establishment of the HCM City website is crucial to diversifying the content of the government’s e-portal and further disseminating information on HCM City to people nationwide.

It is also part of the road map for connecting the Government’s administrative information websites and State agencies’ e-portals, he added.-VNA
