HÀ NỘI – Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính on Wednesday demanded accelerating a project on developing and applying the population database and electronic identification and authentication.

These measures are to help in the national digital transformation process.

The PM, who is also head of the National Committee on Digital Transformation, made the request while chairing a meeting on the initial outcomes and measures for stepping up this project, called Project 06, in the 2022 - 2025 period.

After over a month of implementation, 38 ministries, sectors, and localities have set up working groups while 40 have released plans on the project implementation. The Ministry of Public Security and the Government’s Office, as the standing bodies of the central working group, have taken proactive moves to promote other ministries, sectors, and localities’ performance of tasks under this project, according to a report delivered at the event.

PM Chính said Project 06 helps in the strategic breakthrough on infrastructure identified at the 13th National Party Congress, helping promote digital transformation to build a digital government, digital society, digital economy, and digital citizens.

He ordered ministries, sectors, and provincial-level People’s Committees to quickly carry out this project, speed up the making and overhauling of relevant legal documents, remove obstacles related to funding for IT projects, and address security loopholes to serve the project.

The Government leader pointed out the need to continue improving the awareness of this project since it is directly related to the strategic breakthroughs as well as interests of people, businesses, and the country as a whole, and that it is not a project of a single ministry, agency, unit, or locality.

The PM demanded increasing resources and preparing qualified personnel for this project, pushing ahead in the building and connecting of platforms for sharing data, and frequently reviewing implementation. VNS
