  • An online chat function is added on the main homepage; and registration forms are created and uploaded to assist delegates in registering for key events during the Assembly.

At the meeting, the Auditor General decided to create a web Editor Board led by Mrs. Ha Thi My Dung, the Director of ICD, that takes responsibility for updating information and solving technical issues. The trial period of the website is expected to last from May-June 2017. During this period, the ITC may add some changes without altering the format and structure of the website.
