Vietnam steps up e-government building

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has instructed agencies and local administrations to speed up the building of information sharing systems, public service portals, and the national database toward the establishment of an e-government.

Mr. Phuc said during a teleconference on Tuesday that consistent measures should be applied to ensure smooth transition and maximum security.

An e-government will lay the foundation for a digital government and economy. It will help improve the relationship between the government, the people and businesses, said Mr. Phuc.

Pointing out various problems in e-Government building, the PM said the number of online public services has increased, but efficiency remains low. Some documents creating the legal framework for e-Cabinet building have not been issued, he added.
