VTV.vn - The building of e-government was among the hot topics raised by National Assembly (NA) deputies for Cabinet members during the question-and-answer session on October 31 as part of the ongoing sixth session of the 14th NA.

Bui Thanh Tung, a representative from the northern city of Hai Phong said that over the years, the Government has drastically directed the building of e-government, especially through the launching of online public services at levels 3 and 4 in line with administrative reform.

However, the implementation of digitalisation and the building of specific database and shared data systems have been slow and incoherent, affecting the efficiency of e-government operations, he noted, asking for further clarification on the reasons behind the situation and possible solutions.

Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung replied that the building of the e-government model towards a digital government and economy is an obvious global trend.

Over the past few years, the Party, State, and Government have paid particular attention to the application of information technology and the building of e-government in State administrative agencies, as well as in providing services to people and enterprises.

Dung pointed to a number of achievements in the work, including the issuance of a number of documents and solutions towards developing national database systems on enterprise management and social insurance; and the supply of a number of online public services at levels 3 and 4 such as business registration, tax, customs, and social insurance declaration.

However, he also highlighted the need for the completion of legal institutions and regulations on data sharing and personal information security and archives, along with those on finance resources for related projects.

Minister Dung revealed that the Prime Minister has decided to form a National Committee on E-Government, while assigning ministries and sectors to build the legal foundation and framework of the e-government with absolute network safety.

During the Q&A session, Finance Minister Dinh Tien Dung made clear on some issues concerning land management, evaluation of the rights to land use of equitised State-owned enterprises (SOEs), and invoice management to prevent State budget loss.

Dung said the use and management of land after equitisation in each locality is the responsibility of its People’s Committee, acknowledging that several equitised SOEs took advantage of the State land management policy and relocated polluted facilities out of the inner capital city to change the land use purpose without putting land use rights to auction in line with the law.

Under the Government’s Decree No.126/2017/ND-CP, SOEs’ land use plans must be approved before equitisation. After equitisation, land must be used in line with the approved plan. In cases where the land use purpose is changed, the land must be reclaimed for auction, he said.

According to him, several SOEs use land in many localities so that the involvement of departments and agencies is needed.
