Hai Duong (VNA) – The northern province of Hai Duong recently launched its Local Government Service Platform (LGSP) and public services portal.

The LGSP is hoped to enhance connectivity and data sharing between departments, agencies and district and communal people’s committees in the province, creating a connection among the agencies in performing their tasks.

The province’s LGSP has been successfully connected to the National Government Service Platform (NGSP) of the Ministry of Information and Communications. It has also linked the province’s public services portal with the national information system on business registration, helping local firms track progress of their registration on the portal. 

The portal will also help local people register public services and receive results online, thereby increasing transparency in handling administrative procedures. To date, up to 1,840 administrative procedures have been accessible via the portal.

As of September 27, it had received more than 174,500 documents and handled about 166,380 of them, with the rate of documents settled on time reaching 94.6 percent.

Director of the provincial Department of Information and Communications Nguyen Cao Thang said the operation of the LGSP is set to boost local administrative reform and improve business climate, thus raising the Provincial Competitiveness Index and the Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) Index of Hai Duong.

The department will closely work with relevant agencies in the coming time to bolster connection with database of the country and other sectors, as well as upgrade functions of the provincial LGSP and portal.

This year, Hai Duong ranked 19th out of 63 localities in the ICT Index, up seven places compared to 2018./.
