BEGIC - ​The Intelligent Community Forum has named the world's Smart21 Communities of 2019 including 21 cities and countries which have specific strategies to develop smart cities.  ​

The Smart21 Communities of 2019 include cities and counties from the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, India, Kenya, Russia, Taiwan and Vietnam. Binh Duong is the first locality of Viet Nam has officially joined ICF.

List of the Smart21​ Communities of 2019

The Smart21 are selected by ICF based on quantitative and qualitative data which is evaluated by a group of Analysts led by former Cisco executive and Westchester County (New York) CIO, Dr. Norman Jacknis. The analysis is based on the ICF Method, which provides the conceptual framework for understanding the factors that determine a community's competitiveness in economic, social and cultural terms.

​The Smart21 Communities of 2019 are:

  • Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada
  • Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
  • Binh Duong Smart City, Vietnam
  • Chiayi City, Taiwan
  • Chicago, Illinois, USA
  • Curitiba, Parana, Brazil
  • Greater Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
  • Hudson, Ohio, USA
  • Issy les Moulineaux, France
  • Keelung City, Taiwan
  • Moscow, Russia
  • Nairobi County, Kenya
  • Prospect, So Australia, Australia
  • Rochester, New York, USA
  • Sarnia-Lambton County, Ontario, Canada
  • Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
  • Surat, Gujarat, India
  • Tainan City, Taiwan
  • Taoyuan City, Taiwan
  • Westerville, Ohio, USA
  • Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

To become a smart city and join the Smart21 of ICF, a city or country is required to have six following criteria:


Broadband is the next essential utility, as vital to economic growth as clean water and good roads. Broadband helps connects your computer, laptop or mobile device to billions of devices and users around the world, creating a digital overlay to our physical world that is revolutionizing how we work, play, live, educate and entertain ourselves, govern our citizens and relate to the world. This factor indicates the great progress of IT application.


Knowledge Workforce

Today, all desirable jobs in industrialized economies – and increasingly in developing economies as well – require a higher component of knowledge than they did in the past. A continuous improvement in an evolving range of skills is the only route to personal prosperity. The rapid development of science and technology requires high skilled workforce who are able to adopt in their work. In the future, any employee whose "value-added" does not exceed his or her salary cost can expect to be replaced, sooner or later, by software or hardware.



Intelligent Communities pursue innovation through a relationship between business, government and such institutions as universities and hospitals. The Innovation Triangle or "Triple Helix" helps keep the economic benefits of innovation local, and creates an innovation ecosystem that engages the entire community in positive change. Investments in innovative technology by government contribute to that culture and improve service to citizens while reducing operating costs.

Digital Equality

 Everyone in the community deserves access to broadband technologies and the skills to use them.



Improving current living standards, while maintaining the ability of future generations to do the same, is at the core of sustainability. Throughout human history, economic growth has always involved the consumption of more resources and the production of more waste. We need to find ways to continue growth – with all of its positive impacts on the community – while reducing the environmental impact of that growth.



 It is all too common for a community's leaders or groups of citizens to set themselves against changes that would ultimately benefit the community. The willingness to embrace change and the determination to help shape it, however, are core competencies of the Intelligent Community.


In addition to the above-mentioned criteria, each year, ICF selects a theme to guide its Awards program and annual Summit. The theme of the 2018 program is “Humanizing Data.” It provides your community with an opportunity to report on its achievements in Big Data and Open Data.
