Five-year e-government development strategy towards digital government issued

The Government has issued an e-government development strategy towards the digital government in the 2021-2025 period, with a vision to 2030.

Under the strategy, signed by Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam, Vietnam sets out five groups of targets: providing high-quality services to society; expanding public engagement; improving state agency operations; effectively addressing important issues in socioeconomic growth; making a breakthrough change in the national ranking for e-government, with the goal of bringing Vietnam into the top 50 countries in the world in digital government, e-participation and open data.

To this end, the strategy identifies a number of key national tasks: improving the legal environment; developing digital infrastructure; developing digital platforms and national-scale systems; developing national digital data; developing national applications and services; ensuring the safety and security of the national network.

The strategy also outlines the role and responsibility of ministries, industries, and localities in promoting new digital technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, Mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, and social media, in order to save time and cost in building and operating information systems and automating and optimising work processes./.
