Speaking at the ceremony, Minister and Chairman of
the Government Office Mai Tien Dung lauded the ministry for being one of the
leading three ministries in using information technology in management, and
the first one to follow the Prime Minister’s Decision No.293 on submitting
reports using the Government’s reporting system.
Minister Ha said the environment ministry has
focused on e-government building and digital transformation since 2016, with
the support of the Government Office, the Ministry of Information and
Communications, the Government Information Security Committee and telecom
and IT providers.
It has performed five key tasks, including creating
a legal framework for the operation of e-government, including completing
legal documents on the use and management of natural resource data,
providing online public services and issuing regulations on the standards of
data on land, surveying and mapping.
The ministry also built synchronous technical
infrastructure and put into use the network of global satellite navigation
systems VNGEONET to improve the quality of mapping and land measurement,
contributing to developing smart transportation and urban areas.
Since 2017, the ministry has set up a management
connectivity system with its departments, and held paperless meetings. It
also completed the building of an early reporting system that connects with
the national reporting system as well as put into use an online system for
controlling sources of waste discharges and providing air quality
information for the public./.VNA
