The meeting to promote CA use in the community
The meeting aims at popularizing CA to the public, in turn boosting the growth of a digital economy and society while increasing the service quality to people coming for administrative procedures.
Recently, the HCMC Department of Information and Communications has collaborated with the National Electronic Authentication Center (NEAC) to launch a solution to integrate CA online into the city’s information system for administrative procedures. After this implementation, the system has received several positive feedbacks since it can greatly reduce the time to handle administrative procedures.
Deputy Head of NEAC Pham Quang Hieu shared that at present, his Center is introducing CA services in administrative procedure handling in 17 out of 63 provinces and cities, and 47 of 63 public service e-Portals are available to offer this service to citizens in need.
Meanwhile, NEAC is working with the Vietnam Club of Certificate Authority and Electronic Transaction, 7 major public CA service providers to introduce suitable policies to help the community. NEAC is committed to aiding the HCMC Department of Information and Communications to offer CA free of charge to the public for one year in hope of turning HCMC into the locality with the highest use of CA in the country.
