According to Eduardo Jaen, administrator of the Government Innovation Authority, there is an analysis being made at institutions with most transactions, the Comptroller General's Office and the Ministries of Economy and Finance, Social Development, Education and Health.
The Ministry of Economy and the Authority for Digital Innovation signed an agreement to promote the project.
The government announced it will invest the sum in the next four years to digitalize state procedures, to make Panama ‘paperless’.
With European assistance, Panamanians will have access to government services online for free, through 200 interactive kiosks connected to the ‘Paperless Panama’ program.
The implementation of a new electronic state correspondence platform for the country will save $3 million annually in paper, time and operating costs.
