PM Phuc made the point at the launching ceremony of
the e-Cabinet system which targets to shift from paper-based working modal
to electric, modern, transparent, and efficient working environment.
According to the PM, the Government has drastically
accelerated the e-Government building by learning and researching successful
and unsuccessful experience from other countries and enabling technological
and relevant companies to engage in the process.
He went on to say that this is only the initial and
important pilot step.
PM Phuc acknowledged the difficulties in applying
the new method of working. However, the Government chief underlined the
determination to build e-Government which is the inevitable trend. “If we
hope to successfully build a digital-based economy and a digital-based
society, it is firstly important to build e-Government in which e-Cabinet
represents the first step,” said PM Phuc.
E-Cabinet not only helps cut working time but also
requires more preparations and comments.
On this occasion, PM Phuc proposed making a legal
framework for e-Cabinet to operate in an effective manner.
The Government’s members were urged to uphold the
pioneering sprit and soon mastering the system. The Government is working
toward cutting 30% of average meeting time and using 100% of e-documents
(apart from confidential ones) at governmental meetings by the end of 2019.
The Office of the Government was assigned to receive
and finalize the system in the coming time. The Ministry of Public Security,
the Ministry of Information and Communications, and the Government Cipher
Commission were asked to ensure network security and system security to
prevent information and database disclosure./.
