PYITHU Hluttaw representatives held discussions on a proposal calling for the effective implementation of the e-government system in Myanmar yesterday.
U Naing Htoo Aung of Ngahtogyi Constituency said that implementation of the e-government system will be of great benefit to the country and its citizens, adding that it will quicken the policy and law making process and increase the effectiveness of tax collection, thereby ensuring transparency and curbing corruption.
U Zarni Min of Shweku Constituency said e-government, which is a useful system of public management through ICT, can boost public trust in the government as better services can be brought to the people through effective management.
E-government is the best system to assess the implementation of undertakings, added the lawmaker.
In his discussion, U Soe Myint alias U Aung Zaw Myint of Amarapura Constituency discussed the benefits that could be derived from effective implementation of the e-government system, saying that it can reduce costs and delays in the public sector and facilitate interaction between government organisations and businesspeople.
The discussions attracted 14 Pyithu Hluttaw representatives.
