HCM CITY (VNS)— As of March, the HCM City People's Committee will require soft copies or electronic versions for the submission of administrative documents.
According to the committee's office, the committee will cease dealing in paperwork, with announcements and meeting schemes to be sent via e-mail.
The move aims to help all City-based departments and State-owned companies to transition to electronic procedures to reduce administration costs.
The use of e-documents will also be added as a criteria by the municipal committee and its Home Affairs Department to rate performance among departments and authorities at lower levels.
At present, the city has 137 administration units including departments, districts and State-owned companies. — VNS
