In the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Vietnam was ranked sixth after Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Brunei.

Vietnam came 99th in the 193 member states in the UN e-government development index in 2014. In 2016, the country moved up to the 89th position.

The country aims to be among the top four countries in ASEAN in e-government development index by 2020.

The E-Government Development Index (EGDI) 2018 was divided into four subgroups (Very-High, High, Middle, and Low).

In this year’s edition, 40 countries scored “Very-High”, with EGDI values in the range of 0.75 to 1.00.

Denmark, Australia and the Republic of Korea are leading countries in e-government development.

The EGDI is a weighted average of normalised scores on the three most important dimensions of e-government: the Online Service Index (OSI), the Telecommunication Infrastructure Index (TII), and the Human Capital Index (HCI).

The OSI plays a main role in improving the EGDI.

Biennially, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) provides an overview of the e-government development in the UN member states.
