Vietnam’s data extraction capacity is low.
Information plays an important role in digital transformation, but the ability to use this resource is still weak in areas of Vietnam.

Also, the government insists on getting rid of the “correct information, data, data” mentality. At the same time, a common data store must be created that enables people and companies to conveniently access public services from a single source. In fact, after nearly two years of operation, the National Information Portal has 10.6 lakhs so far. open records. In Australia it is 10% and in Europe 0.75%.
