He told the Vietnam News Agency that the move aims at apaperless government and the reduction of meeting time.

The Government Office is working toward cutting 30 percentof average meeting time and using 100 percent of e-documents (apart fromconfidential ones) at governmental meetings by the end of 2019.

Dung said if the work is done well, it could help prevent pettycorruption, adding that such corruption creates huddles for businesses andstartups and raises official and non-official costs.

He noted a tight process is necessary to ensure effectiveimplementation of the system.

The official stressed building an e-governance meanscarrying out an administrative reform, which requires dedication and theelimination of personal interests and obstacles.

He quoted the Prime Minister’s instruction on streamliningprocedures to reduce time and costs, which he said will create further room forgrowth.-VNA
