According to the deputy minister, e-government procedures are ongoing with the installation of fibre connections for state/region government offices including Nay Pyi Taw.
The deputy minister pledged to urge the departments concerned to carry out the necessary measures to ensure visits to government websites work on mobile phones browsers.
A draft master plan for the e-government system developed by the former Communication and Information Technology Ministry in cooperation with the Asian Development Bank in 2014 was revised with suggestions from local and foreign experts before it was put forward to the President’s Office.
The deputy minister also elaborated on the ongoing Myanmar National Web Portal project and mid-term and long-term plans for the e-government system.
Next, the deputy minister stressed the need for forming a leading committee for the National Information and Communication Council that will take care of the implementation of e-government procedures.
According to the deputy minister, the leading committee will be formed and directed by the President’s Office.
Then, the deputy minister called on the Pyithu Hluttaw to put the proposal on record.
During yesterday’s Pyithu Hluttaw session, nine lawmakers held discussions on the proposal and the Hluttaw decided to record it.
