Hanoi mayor Nguyen Duc Chung noted that in recent years, e-government application in Hanoi has achieved many positive results, contributing to enhancing the city's competitiveness.

However, he requested leaders of the city's departments, agencies and districts to be more proactive and responsible to accelerate the application of e-government by solving pending tasks.

Citizens can participate in the formulation of policies, contribute to the operation of the municipal government through the Hanoi Portal and the portals of the city’s agencies.

According to Head of the Office of the Hanoi People's Committee Vu Dang Dinh, Hanoi has built the Hanoi Smartcity software, an interactive information channel between the municipal government and its citizens, which has shown its effectiveness in the fight against Covid-19. As of May 24, the app had received nearly 16 million hits.

In the near future, Dinh said that Hanoi Smartcity app will be upgraded into an interactive information channel between the city’s residents and government in all socio-economic and cultural fields, including security and order, health, education, online public services, transportation, environment, tourism, among others.
