Vietnam accelerates establishment of e-government
One of the priorities in establishing the e-government is to ensure smooth connection of the information system at district, commune and provincial levels to that of the central government, said Nguyen Manh Hung, minister of Information and Communication.
Following the decision, Hung and Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam were appointed as vice chairmen of the National e-Government Committee to work on the task.
According to Hung, one of the priorities in establishing the e-government is to ensure smooth connection of the information system at district, commune and provincial levels to that of the central government.
Additionally, the government would continue to promoting the application of public online services, focusing on servicing a wider public users.
Since early September, the MIC is responsible for submitting to the prime minister a proposal on sharing data and restructuring IT infrastructure at government agencies and provinces, setting up a government open database and set of key performance indicators (KPIs) in developing the e-government.
Another important task of the MIC is to further develop the National E-document Exchange platform, using modern technologies for data sharing between different information systems, while ensuring cyber security for the government IT system.
As part of the process of developing the e-government, the government has launched the National E-document Exchange platform, the e-cabinet and upgraded the National Public Online Service Portal.
PM Phuc previously said the e-government is a citizen-centric system whose efficiency is measured by the satisfaction and convenience of the people. The lack of involvement of the people, enterprises and organizations in the e-government would mean a failure in establishing such system.
In 2018, Vietnam was ranked 88th out of 193 countries and territories in the E-government Development Index (EGDI) developed by the United Nation, and 6th among 10 ASEAN countries.
The country has consistently improved its ranking over the past three reviews of the index in 2014, 2016 and 2018, scoring 0.47 points in 2014, 0.51 in 2016 and 0.59 in 2018.
