No. 121: Computerize administrative information in Vietnam (August 3, 2010)
NEC got an order from Hanoi to computerize the system for uniform management of resident registration vital for taxation and social security for 260 million yen. The company will operate the system for resident information and thumbprint recognition in the initial stage, and plans to computerize the data of 6.5 million people in Hanoi in three years. The system is designed to decrease the load of various jobs, such as data search and statistics management, to streamline the administrative affairs. Hanoi is followed by other major cities in Vietnam including Hi-phong and Ho Chin Minh. NEC plans to expand the system nationwide using the cloud computing and cover 86 million people in the future.
