Vietnam has made great progress in applying IT in governmental agencies to provide services to citizens, jumping from 126th in 2006 to 90th in 2010 in the United Nations' ranking report on IT.

The rankings were based on electronic readiness, web assessment, human resources, infrastructure and e-participation.

"Viet Nam should promote IT progress, increase efficiency of e-government and administrative reform in parallel with investment and development of IT applications to help the country become a strong country in ICT," Nguyen Trong Duong, head of the Ministry of Information and Communications' ICT Industry Department, said at yesterday's 9th Viet Nam e-Government Symposium Conference.

With the theme "Building e-government integrated with administrative procedure reform," the conference showed that the development of E-gov has progressed dramatically in recent years in the number of computer equipment and trained public servants on IT application and software for administrative reform.

Seventy percent of governmentbodies have their own website, 80 percent of administrative agencies have electronic websites, more than 60 percent of provincial-level state agencies have LAN network, and more than 90 percent use the Internet.

Awareness about e-government among leaders has improved. "However, besides the successes, Viet Nam still has overlapping management and complex administrative procedures. In fact, many localities have not maximised ICT's role," Duong added. On the other hand, Korea is the world's most 'wired" countries.

Imchul Ryu, director of the Korean Ministry of Public Administration and Security's Information Planning&Coordination Division, said: "We have transparent and efficient government, quality public services and advanced infrastructure, thanks to strong government leadership, IT governance, customer-oriented e-government services, performance-based program management and technology support."

To support IT, the Government has approved "the national IT application programme in state agencies'operations for 2011 - 2015," with the aim of developing e-government.

The programme aims to use IT widely in the operations of state agencies; provide information and public online services to serve the public and enterprises.

The conference is a part of the annual Viet Nam Consumer Digital World Expo (VCW 16), held on July 14-17 at Sai Gon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC) in Phu My Hung in District 7.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
