The national data portal was launched by the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) during a ceremony in Hanoi on 31 August.

The portal provides data on state agencies in service of political and socio-economic activities, contributing to the process of e-government building in Vietnam. New digital services, in the process of a digital government building, as well as open data will be provided on the portal. This will make it easier for the public to use them to serve research, study, or product invention, as well as offer feedback to state agencies to improve operating efficiency.

According to a press release, at the event, leaders of the ministries of information and communications, natural resources and environment, science and technology, health, education, and training signed a cooperation agreement with the Vietnam Social Security, the Vietnam National University-Hanoi, and the Vietnam Post Corporation.

The organisations agreed to promote open data and develop the portal. Speaking at the event, the Deputy Minister of Information and Communications, Nguyen Thanh Hung, expressed his belief that Vietnam’s rankings of e-government building in the world, now at 86th place, will improve.

The national database on Vietnamese enterprises is essentially completed while the national population database will be completed next year, he said, adding that apart from the government’s determination and efforts, the involvement of leaders of ministries, agencies, and localities is also needed because they own important data.

The Deputy Head of the MIC’s Authority of Information Technology Application, Do Cong Anh, said the goal of building the portal is promoting data governance in state agencies towards developing data sustainably for the e-government.

Further, as OpenGov Asia reported, MIC announced that the Vietnam 2020 White Book on ICT is scheduled to be issued by 20 December. At a meeting in Hanoi on 26 August, MIC Deputy Minister, Phan Tam, requested relevant units of this ministry to ensure compilation quality and progress so that the document will be published before 20 December.

In the White Book, the first section will provide an overview of the ICT development in Vietnam and the world during the year, the message by the MIC Minister, along with the highlights and ranking of the country’s ICT sector in the world. It will also include articles on the importance of the national digital transformation program to national socio-economic development, as well as orientations for IT and telecommunication development.

The second section will feature data about the top 20 localities in IT revenue, the number of their IT businesses and workers, and the top 20 IT enterprises in terms of revenue, workforce, and contribution to the state budget. The last section will be reserved for introducing ICT agencies and organisations.

Apart from this, the 2020 White Book will also be added with the assessment of the main outcomes of the implementation of Vietnam’s IT industry development program for 2015-2019, an overview of the national digital transformation program, and statistics about foreign investment in the IT sector.
