The cornerstone of this strategy is the aim to transition all administrative procedure applications online, streamlining processes and enhancing efficiency in government services. To support this objective, Vietnam plans to ensure the seamless connectivity of national data centres, regional data centres, and national centres for large data storage and high-performance computing, forming a robust network to facilitate data sharing and processing across the country.

Key components of the strategy include the establishment of government cloud computing platforms and Make in Vietnam mobile application platforms, designed to fully meet the nation’s data storage, collection, connection, and sharing needs. By digitalising 100% of the national database, Vietnam aims to lay the foundation for the development of an e-government framework, enhancing accessibility and transparency in governance.

Furthermore, the strategy emphasises the importance of open data initiatives, with all ministerial and provincial-level state agencies mandated to provide open data for administration activities. This data will not only facilitate policy dissemination but also fuel the development of artificial intelligence applications, driving innovation across various sectors.

Efforts to promote digitalisation extend beyond government services to encompass areas such as land data management, product tracing, logistics, and energy consumption monitoring. By leveraging digital technologies, Vietnam aims to enhance efficiency, transparency, and sustainability across these domains.

Cultural preservation is also a priority, with plans to digitise 90% of cultural heritages, national relics, and special national relics by 2030. This initiative will involve the creation of digital libraries and repositories, ensuring the preservation and accessibility of Vietnam’s rich cultural heritage for future generations.

Additionally, the strategy includes provisions for the completion of social insurance databases and the provision of open data on the labour market. By leveraging data analytics, Vietnam aims to accurately predict labour supply and demand, facilitating informed policy decisions and promoting economic growth.

The national data strategy for 2030 also places a strong emphasis on the development of data services to spur job creation, particularly for individuals facing disabilities and challenging circumstances. It envisions data as a catalyst for administrative reform, economic growth, and societal benefits outlined in its four key goals.

To bolster data infrastructure, the strategy mandates the interconnection of all national and regional data centres, facilitating seamless data sharing and processing. By 2030, government cloud computing platforms and locally developed mobile app platforms will meet 100 % of data storage, collection, connection, and sharing demands while prioritising information security.

A cornerstone of the strategy is the use of national databases to drive e-government initiatives and achieve complete digitisation of administrative procedures. State agencies at all levels will provide high-quality open data, streamlining administrative processes and promoting data reuse and sharing, thereby minimising redundancy for citisens accessing online public services.

In sectors such as agriculture, industry, trade, and energy, comprehensive data coverage will be ensured, laying the groundwork for informed decision-making and innovation. Furthermore, the strategy aims to digitise at least 90% of information related to cultural heritage and national relics, preserving and promoting Vietnam’s rich cultural legacy through digital libraries and heritage sites.

Looking ahead, the strategy sets forth ambitious goals for the development of the data market. Initiatives such as trial data trading platforms and the expansion of data services aim to create job opportunities and stimulate economic growth in the immediate future.

Overall, Vietnam’s National Data Strategy outlines a comprehensive roadmap for digital transformation, encompassing government services, cultural preservation, and economic development. With ambitious targets and a clear vision for the future, Vietnam is poised to harness the power of data to drive innovation and propel the nation towards a digital future.
