Hanoi (VNA) – The national population data centre and the system for making, granting, and managing citizen identity cards made debut on June 22, and they will officially come into operation on July 1.

A conference was held in Hanoi on June 22 to review the projects on the national population database and on the making, granting, and management of citizen ID cards.

Lt. Gen. Nguyen Duy Ngoc, Deputy Minister of Public Security, noted that the ministry was assigned to coordinate the implementation of these two projects, which have achieved four major results: basically completing the national population data centre, completing the granting of personal identification numbers for citizens nationwide, completing the design and production of chip-based ID cards, and successfully connecting the national population database with ministries, sectors, and localities on a trial basis.

Addressing the meeting, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh considered the official operation of the national population database and the citizen ID database a stride in the national governance reform to meet the regional and international integration demand.

It is an important event helping affirm the efforts to promote digital transformation in the country, he said.

The two projects’ outcomes will create optimal conditions for the provision of online public services and the reform of citizen management activities, thus helping with the crime fight and ensuring social order and safety, the Government leader added./.
