Vietnam’s Prime Minister, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, has underlined the need to accelerate the building of a digital government, digital administration and smart urban system.

According to a press release, at a national workshop on legal issues for building and improving Vietnam’s legal system amid the fourth industrial revolution, the government leader said that training legal human resources must keep pace with new trends in technology development.

The Prime Minister asked ministries and sectors to urgently review the current legal documents to better assess their compatibility with industry 4.0 and promptly propose directions for amendments and supplements.

He requested the Ministry of Justice to focus on studying and putting forth specific issues as well as solutions to speed up the building, issuance, and effective implementation of laws.

Meanwhile, he asked the Ministry of Planning and Investment to complete and submit a national strategy on the fourth industrial revolution, and closely coordinate with the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) to build and complete a national digitisation project.

The Prime Minister also urged the Ministry of Public Security to complete a national identity database, serving as a foundation for e-identification and e-authentication, and information sharing in a safe and effective manner. It should also fulfil the guidelines for the implementation of the Law on Cyber Security, thus ensuring both digital social-economic development and network security.

He asked the State Bank of Vietnam to assess the impact of appearance and circulation of digital currencies or e-wallets, thus proposing appropriate policies, and soon submit to the government for the issuance of regulations on new forms of capital mobilisation and credit.

The Ministry of Information and Communications should focus on improving institutions, policies and laws to promote the development of information technology infrastructure, deploy 5G network and meet requirements of the application of the IoT as soon as possible, and coordinate with the State Bank of Vietnam in promoting e-payment, with new forms of payment via mobile (mobile money) or e-wallets, he said.

Vietnam is standing in front of a great opportunity to realise its aspiration for a prosperous and powerful nation if it can effectively apply core technologies of the fourth industrial revolution such as artificial intelligence, IoT, big data, block technology, and cloud computing into socio-economic development, he stressed.

The government leader affirmed that the quality of Vietnam’s economic growth has improved remarkably in recent years, and a number of technological enterprises have enjoyed the growth and become prestigious brands.

He asked relevant agencies to identify legal issues related to technologies, in order to build the nation’s effective legal system amid the current revolution.

Hosted by the Ministry of Justice, the workshop began a national discussion on the future of the legal system in the context of the fourth industrial revolution, which has had a strong impact on the country’s socio-economic development.

Recently, the Prime Minister launched the e-Cabinet system that aims to shift from a paper-based working modal to electric, modern, transparent, and efficient working environment.

According to the Minister, the government has drastically accelerated the e-government building by learning from and researching about successful and unsuccessful models from other countries and enabling technological and relevant companies to engage in the process.
