The Office of the Government (OoG) and the World Bank have signed a Partnership Framework to express their intent to collaborate in the modernization and strengthening of government effectiveness, transparency, and accountability.

The World Bank will support OOG in its efforts to strengthen the delivery mechanisms in administrative procedures and e-government reforms during the 2018-2020 period.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam attended the signing of the framework by Minister and Chairman of OoG Mai Tien Dung and World Bank Country Director for Vietnam, Mr. Ousmane Dione.

“Reforming administrative procedures together with deploying e-government initiatives can improve the government’s effectiveness and enhance the quality and efficiency of service to firms and citizens,” Mr. Dione said. “The World Bank is committed to supporting OoG with our ongoing technical assistance, mobilizing other resources, and leveraging on our experience in supporting other governments in institutional and e-government building towards the digital economy.”

To achieve the common objectives under the Partnership Framework, the two sides are expected to share knowledge, ideas, and lessons learned, plan joint activities in areas of common interest, and pool efforts and expertise. They also plan to jointly engage and collaborate with other stakeholders with a shared interest.

The two sides will also mobilize human and financial resources and engage international and national experts to support activities related to e-government, such as e-Cabinet, e-Consultations, and e-Services.

The Partnership Framework is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia - World Bank Group Strategic Partnership. The Australian Government and the World Bank are delighted to support OoG and the Vietnamese Government in the development and implementation of the e-government resolution for 2018-2020 and towards 2025.
