Vietnam Greenlights National Data Centre

The government has granted its approval, Resolution No. 175/NQ-CP dated 30 October, for the National Data Centre project, aiming to elevate Vietnam’s standing in global e-government, information technology, and cybersecurity rankings. It wants the centre to serve as a tool to resolve and remove bottlenecks while fostering the development of current national databases and any prospective database systems in the future.

The government will construct, manage, use, and run the National Data Centre. The centre will integrate, synchronise, store, share, analyse, exploit, and coordinate data from various state agencies in compliance with legal regulations. It will establish two data warehouses, one focusing on people and the other gathering data from national databases.

The data housed at this centre will form the core of data-related service delivery. It will contribute to policymaking, aid in development, and promote digital government, society, and economy. It will also enhance defence and security measures.

The centre will provide information technology infrastructure for socio-political organisations, national databases, and agencies with data requirements. It will leverage the collected and synchronised data to simplify and streamline administrative processes, improve the services provided by state agencies to citizens and businesses, and carry out in-depth analyses to help the government issue and manage social security policies. This includes policies for insurance, healthcare, and education.

Some of the data stored at the centre will include details on populations, insurance, healthcare, social security, education, and training, as well as staff data, including civil servants, public employees, identification records, civil status, and financial transactions. It will also store activity from the databases of ministries, government branches, and localities.

The centre will function as a hub to connect with international partners to exchange information, collaborate on research, and jointly create development strategies, particularly in the field of science and technology.

The centre is slated to be operational in 2030. It will aid in Vietnam’s deeper integration into the global digital economy. Apart from storing and connecting data from national databases and domestic information systems, it will contain data from governments across the world to support various activities in cyberspace while safeguarding Vietnam’s interests.

It is anticipated that by 2023, more than 90% of administrative activities involving the sharing of information between state agencies will be replaced by sharing digital data from the centre’s warehouses.

The government wants Vietnam to achieve several significant rankings by 2030, aiming to be among the top 50 countries in the E-Government Development Index (EGDI), the top 30 in the ICT Development Index (ID), and the top 30 in the Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI).

The country is recognising the significance of data infrastructure due to its data growth rate, which exceeds the global average.

Earlier this month, the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) launched its largest data centre, VNPT IDC Hoa Lac, in Hanoi. As reported by OpenGov Asia, the centre spans 23,000 square metres and is designed to house 2,000 racks. With equipment from G7 manufacturers, it offers speeds up to 2Gbps per rack for domestic connections and 0.5Gbps per rack for international connections.

It is equipped with an N+1 backup system, which promises stable operation, even during maintenance events. Furthermore, its Data Hall features a 6-layer security monitoring system, adhering to international standards, and guaranteeing the highest level of data safety for clients.
