Therefore, we immediately started a series of actions, within a broad plan of technology and innovation, to guarantee an adequate structure and, above all, to increase agility and efficiency in the provision of public services to the population. So, in 2021, in the first phase of the Valinhos Mais Conectada program, we advanced in the implementation of fiber optics and high-speed Internet in 100% of public buildings in operation, with an emphasis on all health units and all city schools. Now, in this 2nd phase, we are setting up the computers and all the necessary structure to put Valinhos on the path beyond a digital city, but a Smart City, also called a Smart City, with quality, innovation and efficiency in serving Valinhos,” he said.
