Despite the progress made in the process of modernizing of the State and the automatization of government bureaucracy, Panama fell 19 spots in the global ranking of electronic government (E-Government) by the United Nations (UN).
The implementation of a new electronic state correspondence platform for the country will save $3 million annually in paper, time and operating costs.
With European assistance, Panamanians will have access to government services online for free, through 200 interactive kiosks connected to the ‘Paperless Panama’ program.
The Ministry of Economy and the Authority for Digital Innovation signed an agreement to promote the project.
The current government has decide to resume the initiative begun by previous administrations and has set 2014 as its objective.
