The Mozambican National Press (INM) hopes to reduce its paper usage by 90% thereby saving money and to this end launched, on Wednesday, the electronic publication of the Government Gazette, the ‘Boletim da República’ (BR), in the nation’s capital.
The centenary institution produces nearly 300,000 copies of various periodicals every day, leading to a great waste of paper.
Taking steps in a long process of computerisation of services, accepting a government challenge, the INM has found at least one way forward. In addition to the printed publication, it will make the BR available on its website.
“We print the BR print on paper every day, so we expect the electronic BR to reduce paper use by 90%,” Armindo Matos, Chairman of INM’s Board of Directors, hopes.
Minister of Justice Constitutional and Religious Affairs Joaquim Veríssimo attended the launch of the electronic BR on behalf of the government, and recognised in his speech numerous advantages of the INM’s adoption of electronic distribution. The project was more sustainable, he said, and would bring in more money while ensuring “good service to citizens.”
Making the government gazette available in electronic format cost the INM about 17 million meticais, from its own coffers – Armindo Matos having revealed that the institution’s monthly revenues stand at between six and seven million meticais.
