(Ecofin Agency) - The President of the Republic of Algeria, Abdelmadjid Tebboune (pictured), gave his approval to the Ministry of Microenterprise, Start-ups and the Knowledge Economy to implement the Initiative for Digital Transition. The project was presented on 22 March 2020 during the Council of Ministers.
The Digital Transition Initiative will focus on the digitization of the central administration, documents and administrative forms, the generalization of databases based on the National Identification Number (NIN), the creation of a control panel for decision-making and monitoring government projects. The Initiative also incorporates the modernization of the government Internet network to ensure liaison between departments.
The project also proposes several practical measures, including a digital service platform for citizens, that will allow them to carry out several types of online transactions such as booking. This digital transformation will contribute to the collection of economic data that will help in the preparation of budget forecasts.
