The Bac Ninh province plans to promote digital transformation to create breakthrough advancements in administrative reform. During a recent event, the Secretary of the provincial Party Committee, Nguyen Anh Tuan, said that Bac Ninh has quickly responded to the government’s policy on digital transformation, with the provincial Party Committee issuing a digital transformation programme to 2025 with an orientation to 2030.

The conference gave officials of departments, sectors, and localities in Bac Ninh a multi-sided view and deeper awareness of the importance of digital transformation. As of 30 August, over 3 million documents were processed online in the province, accounting for more than 90% of the total documents processed by the provincial state administrative system.

The programme has contributed positively to administrative reform and improving the local business and investment environment. Bac Ninh has also put in place robust information technology infrastructure, rolled out a digital government, and applied a software application for businesses and people to send their opinions to authorities, the Secretary claimed.

He stated that digital transformation should start with digital citizens, so it is necessary to develop a generation of digital citizens for sustainable transformation. He assigned the provincial Department of Information and Communication to advise the steering committee in rolling out key tasks every month, quarter, and year. The Department has also been tasked with building a digital transformation index to assess the performance of local departments, agencies, and localities.

Presenting a thematic report on digital transformation in Bac Ninh, the Deputy Minister of Information and Communication, Nguyen Huy Dung, noted that the province ranked fourth in the national digital transformation index in 2021, with a value of 0.5276, down one place but up 0.118 in terms of value compared to 2020. For the main indicators, Bac Ninh ranked 16th in digital awareness (0.8); 4th in terms of digital institutions (0.75); 7th in terms of digital infrastructure (0.6068); 34th in digital human resources (0.1976); 5th in network information security (0.5335); 9th in digital government activities (0.6167); 21st in digital economic activities (0.3972); and 10th in digital social activities (0.3725).

The province has performed well regarding public awareness about digital transformation and has joined the national communication channel on digital transformation. The Deputy Minister suggested several solutions to help Bac Ninh build a digital government, digital economy, and digital society, which are the three pillars of digital transformation. He also gave out advice and warnings on issues that the province should pay attention to in the field in the time ahead.

The Standing Deputy Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, Vuong Quoc Tuan, highlighted the key contents of Resolution 52-NQ/TU and a plan of action to carry out the resolution. A representative from the Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) delivered a report on information safety and measures to help Bac Ninh ensure cybersecurity.

In June 2020, the National Digital Transformation Programme to 2025, with a vision for 2030 was approved. It set the target of turning Vietnam into a digital, stable, and prosperous country that pioneers in testing new technologies and models. It aims to renovate government management and administration activities fundamentally and comprehensively. It will modernise business production and develop a safe, humane, and wide digital environment by 2030.
