“E-Mongolia” integrated digital system is under development

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] The Communications and Information Technology Authority of Mongolia held a virtual meeting with the E-Governance Academy of Estonia and the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine on August 27. Mongolia is currently implementing a number of projects to deliver public services in an accessible and transparent manner by reducing bureaucracy. “E-Mongolia” integrated digital system is being developed to offer public services online. For the development of this system, Mongolia has selected an Estonia model of e-governance. Under this effort, Mongolia is working in collaboration with Estonia's E-Governance Academy to identify the current state of digital development in Mongolia and to develop a design suitable for Mongolia. In this regard, MP N.Uchral, Head of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Innovation and Online Policy, said that we are working to deliver public services to our citizens under the E-Mongolia integrated digital system. Of 181 public services, 106 services are planned to be provided by the digital system to citizens. Modeling the digital transformation of  Estonia, E-Mongolia integrated digital system is being developed within the framework of cooperation with the Government of Estonia. In the past, the Government of Mongolia introduced ''Khur'' and ''Dan'' public services system. Under the development of E-Mongolia, a previously introduced system will be integrated into this new system providing citizens with fast and easy access to public services by reducing bureaucracy. We expect to introduce the official system entitled ''E-Mongolia integrated digital system'' by the mid of October 2020''.  Estonia is recognized as one of the most digitally advanced nations in the world. As of now, 99 percent of the public services provided by the Estonian government are being delivered via its digital platform. Every year, Estonians obtain 100-120 public services online on average, allowing them to save approximately 10 days of working time. Modeling the Estonian model of e-governance, Ukraine aims to make 100 percent of public services digital by 2024. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
