Gaining a place among the year's Smart21 is considered a badge of honour as well as the first step toward greater recognition as an Intelligent Community positioned to prosper in the broadband economy, the ICF noted.
Of the 2021 list, localities from nine countries were honoured, including those in the US, Russia, Australia, Canada, Brazil, the UK, New Zealand, and Vietnam.
There are currently 180 members from different countries, territories, cities and regions participating in the ICF.VNA
