According to the Information and Communications Strategy Institute, the spirit of the strategy is promoting the use of data as a tool to carry out administrative reform, create economic values, improve competitiveness, and offer benefits to the public.

Under the strategy, the state will share data for socio-economic development. People and businesses will participate in collecting, standardizing, and enriching valuable data. From this, a data culture will be formed.

The national strategy specifies four goals: developing data infrastructure; developing data to serve e-government; developing digital data to serve the digital economy and  society; and ensuring information safety and cybersecurity.

Regarding data infrastructure, all national and regional data centers, big data storage, and high-performance computing will be connected to create a network of sharing and big data processing.

By 2030, the government’s cloud computing platforms and app platforms on Make in Vietnam mobile devices will satisfy 100 percent of demand for storing, collecting, connecting and sharing data, and for information security and cybersecurity.

One of the goals is the use of national databases as a foundation for e-government and complete digitization.

All state agencies at ministerial and provincial levels will provide open data with high quality; all administrative procedures will be digitized, and at least 80 percent of data and results will be re-used and shared. 

People will only have to provide their personal information once when using online public services.

All data in agriculture, industry, trade and energy will be completed. At least 90 percent of information on cultural heritage and national relics will be in digital libraries and digital heritage sites.

The strategy also sets goals in data market development. In the immediate time, data trading floors will be created on a trial basis, and more data services will be generated to create job opportunities.
