Azerbaijan: Foreign Ministry Joins e-Government Portal

Country: Azerbaijan
Created: Nov 05, 2013

The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry joined the e-government portal, it was announced on October 31.

The news was announced by the Information Computing Centre (ICC) of the Communications and Information Technologies Ministry of Azerbaijan in an interview with Trend.

As the ICC said, the Foreign Ministry's e-service on reception of documents and applications for the accreditation of foreign journalists is currently integrated into the portal.

The service is designed for international media representatives who will be able to pre-submit documents required for accreditation at the Foreign Ministry.

The service is provided free of charge.

Most of the government agencies are now available online, which definitely reduces red tape and bribery. According to Azerbaijan's ICT Ministry, currently 43 state bodies offer 426 approved e-services, with nearly 250 of them available online, and the number of users is increasing day by day.

This became possible in early 2012 after the launch of the state electronic government portal, www.e-gov.az, which combines all the government agencies. Over 150,000 users used some 270,000 services at the Web portal in the first half of 2013.

The services provided by the electronic government vary drastically and data publically disclosed by the ICT Ministry every month shows that the e-government is attractive to the people of all generations, as the most widely used services of the e-government portal pertain to insurance and social security issues.

The development of e-services in the country positively changes the relations between citizens and state bodies.
