PM Chinh chairs first meeting of National Committee on Digital Transformation

VOV.VN- Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has affirmed the policy of performing the national digital transformation task through three pillars, including digital government, digital economy, and digital society, all of which were identified in the Resolution adopted at the 13th National Party Congress.

His affirmation was made during the first meeting of the National Committee on Digital Transformation which took place on November 30 in Hanoi.

The e-Government development strategy aims towards developing a digital government as part of the PM’s Decision No. 942 dated June 15 which has defined developing a comprehensive and comprehensive digital government, promoting the achieved results, and mobilizing resources. This is along with the participation of the whole political system to make breakthroughs in forming a digital government by 2025.

The Vietnamese cabinet leader went on to highlight the significance of the first meeting of the Committee. As a means of ensuring consistency in leadership and the direction of the national digital transformation strategy, the PM decided to change the name of the National Committee on E-Government to the National Committee on Digital Transformation.

The Government and the Prime Minister have consistently been determined that building a digital government is one of the key tasks moving forward. Indeed, this is also an inevitable trend and will serve to improve both the transparency and accountability of the Government, whilst simultaneously pushing back against corruption and wastefulness, thereby contributing to promoting socio-economic development, improving the local business environment, enhancing competitiveness, boosting social labour productivity, and being on the right path for national development.

The Government leader therefore requested that members of the National Committee, ministers, and heads of competent agencies, provide specific opinions and point out the achieved results, shortcomings, limitations, existing causes, limitations, and lessons learned. It is through this that they should propose the most practical plans and solutions aimed at accelerating the process of national digital transformation in a bid to promote the nation's socio-economic development.

According to the Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung, the National Digital Transformation Program, the Strategy for Development of E-Government towards Digital Government, and the draft Strategy for the Socio- Economic Development has set out 53 targets to be achieved by 2025.
