After nearly 2 years running the project, the HCMC common database (the first phase) has been finished and is now operating in Quang Trung Software City, based on the integration of current data of different industries in the city.

Certain critical sub databases include 1-stage electronic public service, complaint receipt, hotlines, business registration, foreign investment, tax payers, foreign laborers, land ownership.

The conference wholeheartedly welcomed all ideas from consultation experts, representatives of different industries, and state representatives of districts about management, operation, and exploitation methods for this common database. This will be followed by the adjustment of existing regulations to submit to the HCMC People’s Committee next week.

The new regulation is expected to concretize the city’s policy regarding shared database uses, to create a proper legal corridor for the organization and exploitation of this database in order to better perform administration tasks as well as more effectively serving the public and businesses.
