Wednesday, September 29The Data Exchange Agency of the Ministry of Justice of Georgia launched a new website at www.e-government.ge on Tuesday, which is a collection of Georgia’s governmental electronic resources. According to the project's authors, the website makes it easier for users, including citizens, entrepreneurs, state employees and foreign citizens, to search for and use the services through the simple navigation tools.
Leading countries of the modern world are paying more and more attention to the development of e-governance by turning traditional governmental services into a digital format and offering such services to beneficiaries, the Chairman of Data Exchange Agency, Irakli Gvenetadze said at the presentation ceremony at Sheraton Metechi Palace hotel. According to him, numerous governmental institutions have achieved “notable” results in this direction in Georgia, which, as Gvenetadze said, resulted in an increased number of e-services.
“We now have many sophisticated means of interaction with governmental institutions. This and other reasons inspired us to create a unified web-portal in which all existed services would be presented,” Chairman of DEA said, adding that Georgia is one of the leaders among the post soviet countries in terms of development and installation of e-services.
The citizens will be able to subscribe to www.e-government.ge newsletters about the new projects in different service sectors, according to Gvenetadze. The users of the website have an opportunity to rate the services. “It will help different agencies to evaluate the quality of the services they offer,” DEA Chairman said.
