By Decree No. 54 of 2021, Parliament Speaker established a working group to prepare the draft Laws on Public Information, Protection of Personal Information, Cyber Security, and Electronic Signatures for discussion, as well as other draft laws submitted together with these draft laws. Members of the working group, N.Uchral, E.Bat-Amgalan, J.Sukhbaatar, and D.Tsogtbaatar, members of the State Great Hural, worked at the Communications and Information Technology Authority today (August 5, 2021) and visited “1111” and “E-Mongolia” center as well.
The development of public services in Mongolia can be divided into four stages: multi-employee in multiple locations, multi-employee in one location, one employee in the operating system to deliver services to multiple organizations, and citizens accessing all government services electronically.
The Communications and Information Technology Authority is developing an E-Mongolia integrated public service platform, which receives an average of 50,000 to 60,000 visits a day. Citizens can access 539 public services online such as vaccination certificates, social security contributions, and residency information, etc.
B.Bolor-Erdene, Chairwoman of CITA, emphasized in her presentation that “E-Mongolia is part of e-government and it’s not just about telecommunications, information technology or public services. With the rapid development of technology, the government is working to become a “Digital Nation”. In order to become a “Digital Nation”, many things need to be done, such as improving the basic capacity of e-government for all, training skilled professionals, promoting the proper use of the Internet, ensuring access to information for people with disabilities, and increasing access to information. It is important to create a public-private partnership, citizen participation, and a legal environment for e-transition.”
- Uchral, Member of Parliament, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Innovation and e-Policy, and Head of the Working Group, said, “There is a need for our country to improve its competitiveness with other countries in the world. In addition to technological innovations, the Parliament’s Standing Committee on Innovation and e-Policy, the Standing Committee on Legal Affairs, and the Standing Committee on Security and Foreign Policy are working together on draft laws on Public Information, Protection of Personal Information, Cyber Security and Electronic Signatures. Information security is the most important thing in the development of E-government.”
