PM chairs first session of National e-Government Committee

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc stressed the need to develop an e-Government Thursday while chairing the initial session of the National e-Government Committee.

Mr. Phuc said Vietnam has been planning to develop an e-Government for a long time, and information technology applications have been implemented at all levels to familiarise people with the e-environment. So far, Vietnam's e-Government ranks no higher than 68th of 93 nations worldwide and 6th of 10 in ASEAN.

PM Phuc said the Committee's other members are ministers of relevant ministries and leaders of four major IT companies in Vietnam. The participation of the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister reflects a strong political determination to build an e-Government.

At the first session, the PM asked committee members to list the obstacles to building an e-Government in order to find solutions. He urged them to discuss targets for each period, a budget for e-Government building, a mechanism for enforcing e-Government, and an action plan for the National e-Government Committee. He asked for strict discipline in building the e-government: We need to continue and develop IT programs and follow directions of the Politburo, the government and the Prime Minister, in building an e-government. We need to bring the role of leaders into play and reform working methods by using IT as an effective tool to boost administrative reform, with the public and enterprises as the center. Satisfaction of organizations and individuals is the measurement of the development of the e-government.

On the occasion, the PM witnessed the signing of cooperation agreements on e-government building between the Government Office, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the World Bank in Vietnam, along with regulations for coordination between the Government Office, the MoIC and the Government Information Security Commission.
