DECIDES:

I. CONTEXT ASSESSMENT

            Over the past years, the Party and Government have always paid heed to promoting the application of information technology (IT), developing e-Government in the activities of state agencies to better serve people and businesses. On that basis, ministries, sectors and localities have made great efforts and achieved initial results in implementing e-Government development, such as: promulgating under authority, submitting to competent authorities for promulgation of regulations and guidelines to improve the legal framework and promote e-Government development; building and putting into operation the National Database of Business Registration, step by step building the National Database of: Insurance, Land, Population; providing some essential online public services for businesses and people such as: business registration, tax declaration, tax payment, customs and social insurance…; a number of ministries and sectors have handled work online; In some localities, the electronic Single Window system has been put into operation, improving the transparency and accountability of civil servants; the quality of Viet Nam's human resource in the IT sector has also been improved. According to the United Nations e-Government Survey, in 2016, Viet Nam's e-Government Development Index (EGDI) ranked 89 out of 192 countries, up 10 places, of which the sub-index of online public services (OSI) increased by 8 ranks, to rank 74/193 countries (compared to 2014); In 2018, Viet Nam's EGDI ranked 88 out of 183 countries, up 1 place, of which the OSI rose 15 places, to rank 59/193 countries (compared to 2016).

            In addition, many contents of e-Government development have not been achieved as expected, the results are still of limited level such as: the Viet Nam's EGDI is still low, below the ASEAN average, the telecommmunication infrastructure index (TII) fell by 10 places, to rank 100 out of 193 countries (compared to 2016); In particular, there is a lack of a synchronous legal framework for e-Government development; the construction of national databases and fundamental IT infrastructure for e-Government development is slow; information security and safety is low; there has not yet been data connection and sharing between information systems; the mechanism for investment and IT service rent still meets with many difficulties; the application of IT has not been effective, the settlement of administrative procedures (AP) and the processing of work dossiers depends heavily on paperwork, in manual manner; the rate of using online public services is still very low.

            The main cause of the above-mentioned facts is the lack of leadership role in directing the implementation; the mechanism to ensure the implementation of the tasks of e-Government development is not strong enough, governmental levels and sectors have not clearly defined the roadmap and specific objectives of implementation; there is a lack of a synchronous legal framework for e-Government development; lack of financial and investment mechanisms in line with particular nature of IT projects; lack of specific regulations on identification and authentication of individuals and organizations in electronic transactions; lack of legal provisions on electronic archives; the data integration and sharing platform among the information systems of the state administrative agencies has been implemented slowly; Disconnection and self-management of information and data is still common, leading to duplication and inconsistency of information; ensuring safety and security for information systems of state agencies has not been given due attention; many ministries, sectors and localities also underestimate the application of IT in management and administration; implementation is still in formal manner, the habits of paper-based work have not been removed; there is a lack of close linkage between IT application and administrative reform and reform of working methods; communication and maximum mobilization of social resources in the e-Government development has not received sufficient attention...

            The formulation and issuance of the Resolution of the Government on some key tasks and solutions for e-Government development in the period of 2019-2020, towards 2025 is an urgent requirement in order to inherit and bring into full play the achievements and overcome the above limitations and shortcomings, meeting with the future objectives figured out by the Government and the Prime Minister, step by step realizing the determination to build up an enabling Government integrity and action to better the people and businesses, especially in the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution,
