The central province of Nghe An is working hard to build its electronic governance capabilities in the near future, in a bid to boost information technology application to the mountain of administrative work facing local authorities.

To realise its set target, the province will focus on building a data integration centre and installing an internet network on a large scale. It will also upgrade and develop communication channels between local authorities, people and enterprises operating in the province.

The application of IT in state agencies and organisation will be promoted to further foster links between them.

As planned, the local government will focus on forming a database for storing information related to people, land, housing, business units and administrative procedures. Meanwhile, an electronic information portal will be developed to provide public services.

Nghe An has seen an increasing development of IT application and communication in recent times, contributing to improving efficiency of State management and speeding up socio-economic development in the locality.

However, the infrastructure facilities and the workforce for developing the sector have not met demand.-VNA
