Mozambique and other Portuguese-speaking African countries (PALOP-TL) and to get a road map to guide the transition from electronic to digital governance, implying the full use of digital technology in the modernisation of the public sector.
The document will be produced based on the analysis of the situation of the nations concerned, and led by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and is part of the PALOP-TL Project to Support Quality Improvement and Proximity to Public Services.
A seminar on digital transformation in Maputo yesterday pointed out that, in addition to using the Internet and other associated services, the new stage entailed the execution of all administrative operations based on the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). To this end, an ecosystem will be created that includes, among other stakeholder, non-governmental organisations, associations and private entities which support the production of and access to data, services and contents through the integration of the public sector.
According to the national director of Electronic Government, Sérgio Mapsanganhe, the document will show the steps to follow for the transition from electronic to digital. Despite expectations, he said, the process would be complex.
Reinforcing the idea, the Deputy Director General of the National Institute of Technology and Information and Communication (INTIC), Augusto Nunes, detailed that the OECD would conduct seminars and conduct meetings with public administration institutions to gather more data for the roadmap.
“We are aware that exercises of this nature have been performed in recent times, ending, however, in simple recommendations. This time we hope the results of the process will be clear,” he said.
The Deputy Director-General expects the roadmap to be objective and its activities measurable and tailored to the reality of the countries concerned. “We want the roadmap to be drawn up in line with current dynamics and advances in digital governance issues around the world,” he concluded.Source: Notícias
