Meanwhile, Lesy Goh, Group Chief Technology Officer and Director of Enterprise Architecture and Technology of the World Bank named challenges for Viet Nam to carry out e-government projects, thus the country needs to balance time and set goals.

Minister-Chairman Dung said the Government of Viet Nam places high priority on e-government development in 2019, focusing on raising the country’s global e-government index.

The Government established a national committee for e-government led by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc since August 2018

On March 12, 2019, the Government launched the national e-document exchange platform and planned to inaugurate the national online public service portal in November this year.

Dung called on the World Bank to continue assistance for Viet Nam’s e-government development efforts, including sharing good practices, institutional building, human resource training, and public awareness improvement./.
