MINSK, 3 February (BelTA) - The EAEU countries have a high level of e-government services, Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission Mikhail Myasnikovich said at a plenary session of the Digital Almaty 2023 forum in Kazakhstan on 3 February, BelTA has learned.
“All the countries of our economic union have a high or very high level of development of e-government services, according to international experts and the UN 2022 rankings. The general trends of development are the same in all the countries. Digital development itself is a priority, the accessibility of services is improving, investment in digital technologies in education, trade, manufacturing and other sectors of the real economy is on the rise,” Mikhail Myasnikovich said.
In his words, the objective reality is that the levels of digital development in the EAEU countries differ however. “Our Commission is making efforts to use the available tools to help increase the level of informatization in the member states of the Union in general. The basis of the information architecture is an integrated information system, which is a comprehensive mechanism of interstate information exchange,” he said.
The interaction of government bodies of all the EAEU countries is one of the most important conditions for the smooth functioning of the common market. “The countries are actively using this system. During the past year we have addressed a number of important issues. Necessary opportunities have been created, and the necessary basis has been set up. Some 54 common processes have been put into operation. By the end of 2024 we will bring the number of business processes that will be used for information exchange between the countries of the union to at least 90% of the approved plan,” said the chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
“The Eurasian Economic Commission will have to perform a fairly large amount of work on full technical and organizational support of information exchange of the G2G format within the framework of various business processes. The already created base makes us confident that we will cope with these tasks, given the active position of the governments of the EAEU member states on the development of national segments and information exchange between government bodies. All necessary documents are available,” Mikhail Myasnikovich stressed.
