Under the cooperation between Huế city, the German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ), and tech firm Vietsoftpro; an innovative public bike-sharing scheme will be developed for Huế city. This project was launched on 27th April 2021 by a signing ceremony. It aims to develop a bicycle transportation plan in 2016 – 2020, which mobilizes private investment for bike-sharing services in Huế. This partnership model is within the framework of the project “Support to Việt Nam for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement” (SIPA). The model is supported by the DevelopPPP, a financial mechanism of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) under the implementation of GIZ Vietnam. Public bike-sharing is part of an urban mobility transformation, which is expected to significantly reduce transport emissions and indirectly improve air quality.
