Vietnam Issues Electronic Identification Codes for IT Ministry

The Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) has issued electronic identification (eID) codes for its agencies and units. The move is a part of the country’s national digital transformation goals, which include building an e-government.

The ministry gets the eID Level 1 code and the advisory units (the office, inspectorate, and authorities of the ministry) are issued Level 2 codes. Level 3 is for its departments and their subordinate centres, and Level 4 is for the Institute of Post and Telecommunications Technology and its subordinate units.

MIC has already launched a national data exchange platform (NDXP) to help connect, integrate, and share data among ministries, sectors, and localities nationwide. All 22 ministries, ministry-level agencies, and 63 provinces and cities are now connected with the NDXP. In the first quarter of 2022, more than 134.5 million transactions were made on the NDXP, surging 24-fold from a year earlier, according to MIC.

Last year, the Prime Minister approved an e-government development strategy that aims to put Vietnam among the top 30 countries in the United Nations e-government ranking list by 2030. It identified five key target groups:

  • providing high-quality services to society
  • broadening public engagement
  • improving state agency operations
  • effectively addressing important issues in socioeconomic growth
  • creating breakthrough change in the national ranking for e-government, digital government, e-participation, and open data as assessed by the United Nations.

To realise these targets, the strategy has outlined six groups of national key tasks, including improving the legal environment and developing digital infrastructure (cloud-first), digital platforms, national-scale systems, and national digital data. It will also create national applications and services and ensure the safety and security of the national network. Other tasks include operating specialised network infrastructure securely, connecting four administrative levels from central to commune level, and building a government cloud computing platform.

In April, the National Committee on Digital Transformation approved a plan to boost e-government targets. Under the plan, the committee will increase the rate of online public services to 80%, the rate of administrative procedures dossiers processed online to 50%, and the rate of digitisation of dossiers and results of administrative procedures to 100%. Also, it will increase the rate of reports made online by state administrative agencies to 50% as well as the rate of state agencies providing full open data by category to 50%. There are 18 tasks assigned to the committee’s members, which include universalising smartphones, electronic identities, and broadband fibre optic cables. The committee will enhance network information safety and security, develop electronic health records, support online teaching, and digitally transform small and medium-sized enterprises.

Other goals involve comprehensively promoting digital payment methods, boosting e-commerce and digital commerce, focussing on smart urban planning, and increasing spending on scientific research for digital transformation. The committee aims to operationalise an agricultural database and create a national database on cadres, civil servants, and public employees. The government aims for the total amount of non-cash payments of tuition and hospital fees to reach at least 50% by the end of this year.
