Aside from simplifying procedures, the government said enhancing its e-governance capabilities can save the government up to VND 30 trillion (US$1.5 billion) annually. CrimsonLogic is working with telecommunications provider FPT Information Systems to implement the project for the Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Transparency in governance
The goal of the government is to simplify administrative processes through transparent and efficient online services within five years. Said Dr Nguyen Thanh Phuc, director general, Authority of IT Application, MIC: "Technology plays a key role for Vietnam to become a strong nation in IT and in e-government implementation.
We are deeply committed to the development of a reliable IT infrastructure as it advances the use of technology in government agencies, which improves productivity and reduces operational costs." CrimsonLogic said PKI provides a secure platform for authenticating information, data integrity, and offers confidentiality.
Leong Peng Kiong, chief executive officer, CrimsonLogic, said the PKI project is a good foundation that can gradually lead to other projects by other government agencies in Vietnam. This, in turn, will provide more e-services to Vietnam's citizens and businesses. "CrimsonLogic's expertise with e-government implementations instils confidence that our partnership will be a success, enabling the Vietnamese government to deliver high-quality and efficient services," said Duong Dung Trieu, CEO, FPT Information Systems.
