Hanoi (VNA) – The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) has promoted the use of information technology in management by implementing electronic document applications and as part of an effort to boost the development of e-government among state agencies.

The ministry’s electronic document management system (iMoIT) has been implemented in the ministry’s 38 units since June 1, which helps facilitate coordination, information exchange and recommendations.

According to the units, iMoIT reduces costs while shortening the time to look for documents. In addition, the system allows officials to control, handle documents and give guidance to their staff through the internet.

Some 936 people, half of the ministry’s staff, have used the system.

Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh said that being a leading ministry in applying information and technology, the ministry has offered 24 online public services to citizens and businesses and the number is expected to rise to 52 this year.-VNA
