NDO – The Prime Minister's Working Group held a working session on August 29 with Hanoi and other provinces and cities in the North to discuss the e-government building and administrative procedure reform at these localities.

Minister-Chairman of the Government Office, Mai Tien Dung, who is also the head of the PM’s Working Group, chaired the session with representatives from Hanoi, Hai Phong, Phu Tho, Thai Nguyen, Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, Vinh Phuc and Hai Duong.

Minister-Chairman Dung praised the efforts of the locales in deploying PM’s granted tasks in the two fields, noting on several key achievements recently, including the launch of the National E-Document Exchange Platform in March and the e-Cabinet system in June, towards a paperless government.

At the local level, the stellar examples can be mentioned in Bac Giang, Hai Phong, Hanoi, Bac Ninh and Thai Nguyen, with the use of digital signatures in nearly 100% of documents sent to the Government Office. The localities have completed the connection with the National E-Document Exchange Platform under the guidance of the Government Office. From March 12 to August 20, more than 86,000 texts were sent and more than 263,000 ones received via the platform.

Minister-Chairman Dung emphasised the need to build a team of professional officials capable of mastering IT and administrative reforms to boost the e-government building on the basis of reforming administrative procedures and technologies to serve reform itself.

Reaffirming the PM’s request on promoting further substantive reforms, he also asked the local authorities to consider the use of software in providing public services, especially in terms of information security.
