Vietnam Working on National Population Database, E-Authentication Project

During a meeting with leaders of the municipal People’s Committee, the Deputy Prime Minister, Vu Duc Dam, underscored the importance of the project to develop a national population database and electronic authentication and identification (Project 06), which is being piloted in Hanoi.

In January, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh signed a decision approving a project to develop the population database and applications for e-identification and e-authentication for the 2022-2025 period. Under the scheme, apart from the database and applications, citizen ID cards with electronic chips will serve administrative procedures and online public services supply, socio-economic expansion, and digital citizens development.

According to Dam, the use of information technology in state governance will bring about profound changes in every public administration service and procedure and transform the thinking of people in leadership roles. Executives must function as roles model in accelerating IT applications. Dam also serves as Vice Chairman of the National Steering Committee on Digital Transformation.

Given the large scale of the project, it requires great determination of various ministries and governmental agencies to address legal barriers and change their “localised mindset” to share a database system, he said. Selected as a city to run the project on a trial basis, Hanoi must redouble efforts and take concrete steps to translate it into reality, he urged. The city’s departments and units must closely coordinate and establish inter-sectoral task forces to tackle emerging issues. According to the Standing Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, the city has also reviewed, verified, and updated 8 million pieces of population data and 700,000 cases of COVID-19 vaccination. As of the start of September, the local establishments, excluding ministries and sectors’ hospitals based in Hanoi, had verified more than 12 million vaccine doses (equivalent to 75.35%) while over 4.2 million others (24.65%) had not. The department said its subordinate units have coordinated with public security divisions at different levels and related agencies to verify and update the data on the national population database and the national platform for COVID-19 vaccination management.

About 4.4 million health insurance holders have had their personal information synced with ID cards. From now to the end of 2022, the department will continue asking vaccination establishments to review existing data on the management platform and work with police to carry out verification, correction, and supplementation to ensure information accuracy on the national population database.

In June, the government announced plans to give all households in the country digital addresses by 2025. The strategy intends to make the postal industry an essential element of the country’s digital economy infrastructure by making it a foundation for e-commerce, as OpenGov Asia reported.

The Hanoi People’s Committee issued a plan to carry out a pilot implementation of the national digital address platform associated with the digital map programme in the capital city. It was initially piloted in the Hoang Mai, Hoan Kiem, Nam Tu Liem, Dong Anh, and Thach That districts. Services that use digital addresses were also piloted, including tourism, fire prevention and fighting, and postal services.
