The National Data Center must become an important part of the country’s digital infrastructure serving economic development and social management in conformity with Vietnamese characteristics.
This is one of the targets set forth under Government Resolution 175/2023/NQ-CP dated October 30, approving the scheme on development of the National Data Center.
It is also expected to help Vietnam reach higher positions in the global e-government, information technology, and cybersecurity rankings.
To be built, managed, exploited and run by the Government, the National Data Center will integrate, synchronize, store, share, analyze, exploit, and coordinate data of state agencies in line with legal regulations to create a data warehouse on people and another gathering data from national databases.
Data at this Center will form the core base for supplying data-related services, helping with policy making, facilitating development, and contributing to the digital government, society and economy building and defense-security safeguarding. The center will provide information technology infrastructure for socio-political organizations, national databases, and the agencies with data demand.
Besides, it will use collected and synchronized data to simplify administrative procedures, improve state agencies’ services for people and businesses, and conduct in-depth analyses to assist the Government in management and issuance of social security policies, including those on insurance, health care and education, to help foster social development and progress.
Once put into use, the National Data Center is expected to be a prerequisite for boosting the capitalization of national databases to serve socio-economic development and help Vietnam further integrate into the global digital economy.
As for specific targets, by 2030, over 90 percent of administrative activities in exchanging information among state agencies will be replaced by sharing digital data from the center’s data warehouses, according to the plan.
At the same time, Vietnam will be one of the top 50 countries in the E-government Development Index rankings, the top 30 in the ICT Development Index, and the top 30 in the Global Cybersecurity Index.- (VLLF)
