Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has asked ministries, sectors, and localities to focus on launching online public services effectively at level 3 and 4, as stated in Decision No.846/QD-TTg, dated June 9, 2017, and Decision No.877/QD-TTg, issued on July 18, 2018.

Under a new direction from the Prime Minister on enhancing Vietnam’s e-government development index, in line with the United Nations’ evaluation methods, the ministries, sectors, and localities must improve the quality of their online public services, with priority on important services.

They were requested to efficiently carry out the Government’s Decree No.61/2018/ND-CP issued on April 23, 2018 on the implementation of the single-window mechanism in dealing with administrative procedures – ensuring that each ministry, sector, and locality has only one concentrated online service portal that is convenient for people and enterprises to use.

The Ministry of Information and Communications was assigned to review and evaluate the component index of Vietnam’s infrastructure in accordance with the assessment methods of the UN, while also giving proposals on measures to improve the index to be submitted to the Government before September 1, 2018.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education and Training was also asked to provide full and updated information of Vietnam’s human resources index to relevant international organisations, while continuing to apply measures to enhance this index. –VNA
