Burma, ADB Collaborate on US$1.5 Million E-Governance Plan
13 August 2013
Burma is reportedly collaborating with the Asian Development Bank on a US$1.5 million e-governance master plan, in a bid to streamline bureaucratic processes. Consulting firms will likely be invited to submit project proposals this week, reported FutureGov, a Singapore-based publication focusing on the modernization of governments in Asia. “While the government had introduced an e-government system into ministries last year, it has not yet reached the level we want,” presidential adviser Aung Tun Thet told FutureGov. He said the project, which would streamline services through information and communication technology, would be led by the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology.
