Industry 4.0 requires Government to change itself: PM

The Government needs to change itself in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) in order to be able to govern the country in the digital age, said Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

Addressing the Vietnam ICT Summit in Hanoi on Wednesday, the Prime Minister highlighted the role played by the heads of agencies in e-Government construction, as well as the significance of information-technology (IT) in administrative reform. Vietnam is working to establish a National Committee on E-Government led by the PM, with members being comprised of ministers, he said, adding that the committee also acknowledges the participation of representatives from the private economic sector, in order to utilize the public-private partnership in this regard. He asked ministries, agencies and localities to continue to improve the quality of legal institutions and policies, and create a framework for the process. Prime Minister Phuc said: We should standardize human resources to meet the demands of the 4th industrial revolution. We should also focus on education and training, the living and working environment, income and insurance. A smart labor force plus creativity would serve as driving forces for economic development amidst the Industry 4.0.

He also called for efforts in building technological platforms for the e-Government, including updating the e-Government architectural framework, completing the national database, and building the national public service portal and the national information system, which serve as the IT foundation for e-Government building.
