the use of Unicode for Vietnamese language content in Government

Dear all,

Some colleagues and I have been discussing the use of
Unicode in Government in Viet Nam. UNDP has a number of
projects with the Government and it seems that none of
them are using Unicode. We only get information in ABC
fonts - sometimes VNI in the South. Our Standards people
at MOST use Unicode and Open Source but aside from that,
it would be very useful to know who else is using Unicode
for daily office work.

It appears that Unicode is common on the Internet but the
important question for the expansison of Unicode into the
Government and the general community.

I would like to direct a general question to anyone who
can respond, if briefly on two questions:

What is your office? and
What font system do you use for Office documents
(ABC, VNI, Unicode)?

Please respond to me at <> and I will
summarise the points
