Japanese experience and strategies in e-government were presented at a workshop in Hanoi on October 18. The event was co-organized by the Ministry of Information and Communications and Japan’s Fujitsu Vietnam Company. Hiroaki Yoshida, Fujitsu’s director for government solutions, presented Japan’s strategies for building an easy-to-access year-round, 24-hour-a-day e-government system to provide convenient, efficient updated information for the public.
He also talked about Fujitsu’s successful experience in digitalizing stock reports and developing a system for estimating annual state budgets, as well as a system for registering real estate.
Addressing the workshop, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Minh Hong said the Vietnamese Government is keen on applying e-government services to boost the efficiency of State agencies and provide the public and businesses with necessary information and public services.
To this end, Mr Hong said the Prime Minister had approved a national information technology (IT) programme application in State organs during the 2011-2015 period and another project to make Vietnam a regional IT power.
A representative of the IT Application Department said Vietnam aims to develop an inter-connected paperless government with easy public access.
This representative added that the country will complete its technical infrastructure to provide a foundation for the widespread application of IT and e-government systems in State agencies by 2015.
