Digital data sharing among state agencies proposed

Updated: 14:20’ - 05/07/2019
State agencies would have to share digital data with one another to facilitate their operations and serve the people and enterprises.

Such is provided in the second draft decree prepared by the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) on the management, connection and sharing of digital data among state agencies.

According to the draft, digital data may be shared in four forms, including data sharing by default, data sharing under agreement, data sharing to organizations and individuals under the law on access to information, and open data sharing.

State agencies would not be allowed to recollect digital data identical to those that may have been provided by other state agencies. Data sharing among state agencies would not be permitted if it is likely to affect the benefits and responsibilities of organizations and individuals in relation to the shared digital data. Shared information must be updated and accurate.

State agencies would have to manage digital data so as to facilitate the sharing and mining of digital data. Data sharing must comply with the regulations on confidentiality and intellectual property rights related to digital data, privacy of organizations and individuals, the Vietnam E-Government Architecture Framework and e-government architecture at ministerial and local levels.

According to the MIC, data plays an important role in the development of an e-government and a digital economy. Therefore, they should be shared and information systems connected to improve the quality of services provided to people and enterprises and to ensure the effective and efficient management by the Government.- (VLLF)
