This is one of the six major orientations of the information and communications industry,  MIC Deputy Minister Pham Anh Tuan pointed out, while requesting the department to complete the database for deploying the digital Vpostcode system in the whole city in the second quarter of this year.

Vpostcode was developed by Vietnam Post to boost the growth of e-commerce and the digitalization of the postal industry. 

For this year, Deputy Minister Tuan requested the department to focus on developing and completing digital infrastructure, as well as focusing on IT parks and promoting the development of digital enterprises and startups. He urged the department to accelerate the deployment of shared platforms to boost e-government application.

The deputy minister encouraged entities of the Ministry of Information and Communications to sign cooperation agreements with the department in the realization of the six MIC’s orientations.

"The department should play a key role in coordinating with relevant agencies to promptly provide official information on issues of social concern. In addition, the training of high-quality IT laborers should also be enhanced as they plays a core role to make Hanoi develop towards civilization and modernity," Mr. Tuan requested.

At the event, Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee Chu Xuan Dung spoke highly of the Department of Information and Communications’ achievements in 2020, which contributed to helping the capital achieve the dual goal of the economic development and prevention of the pandemic.
