Vietnam Accelerates Digital Transformation in 2022, Targets Completing National Database in 2023

The Prime Minister, Minh Chinh, has announced a shared national database will be completed by next year. He was speaking at a meeting to review one year of implementing the project (Project 06) on developing the population database and e-identification and e-authentication applications for the national digital transformation.

As per a press release, the Prime Minister outlined several challenges in the way of the target for 2023, including an incomplete digital infrastructure and a significant gap between urban and rural areas. He noted that Vietnam still has 266 villages that have yet to access power and Internet services. He asked relevant agencies to work together to ensure that these services are provided to all areas of the country within 2023, targeting equal development opportunities for all.

Chinh requested ministries, sectors, and localities to further improve their awareness of the significance of digital transformation in the national socio-economic development strategy in the 2021-2030 period. As well as continuing to complete institutions and mechanisms to create a favourable legal corridor for national digital transformation.

He urged acceleration of the updating, connecting, and sharing of digital platforms and databases, including connecting national and specialised databases with the government’s information and governance centre. Furthermore, he urged officials to complete the public service portal. Efforts should be focused on completing the online provision of 53 essential public services, and greater attention paid to personnel training for the work, he said.

Ministries and localities have been assigned specific tasks. According to the National Committee on Digital Transformation, after a year of implementing Project 06, the awareness and behavior of digital transformation have been improved in all localities at all levels. State management activities have generally switched to digital modes with many helpful products and services provided to people and businesses.

In 2022, 16 documents were issued regarding digital transformation, including a national strategy for digital economic development until 2025 with a vision for 2030. The speed of broadband Internet and mobile Internet has improved significantly, ranking 45th and 52nd in the world. The figure is higher than the world’s average.

Currently, 48 out of 63 localities have operated their provincial smart monitoring and managing centres. A population database has been set up, connected to 47 ministries, localities, and state businesses, while more than 76 million chip-based ID cards have been issued, and nearly 2.6 million e-ID accounts have been activated.

At the same time, the National Online Service Portal has provided nearly 4,400 public services at levels 3 and 4. Public services at level 4 allow users to fill in and send application forms to the wards’ people’s committees entirely online. The forms are then processed online, and users can pay the fees online.

Meanwhile, in the year, more than 12,000 cyber-attacks were detected and handled, while more than 56% of Party and state agencies have applied standards on information security. To date, 99% of all enterprises have paid their taxes online, while all operating businesses have used e-invoices. In 2022, e-commerce contributed 7.5% to total retail revenue, while a strong rise was seen in the number of online shoppers and subscribers of Mobile Money, the committee reported.
