Dr. Umar Saif, the Federal Minister for Information Technology, held a pivotal meeting with a World Bank delegation to discuss the advancement of Pakistan’s digital infrastructure.
According to a press release, the meeting centered on bilateral talks and the implementation of the ambitious ‘Digital Economy Enhancement Project.’
Throughout the meeting, comprehensive discussions revolved around bilateral issues and the ‘Digital Economy Enhancement Project.’
In recent years, significant strides have been made in digitization at both provincial and federal levels.
However, one notable challenge has been the lack of interconnectedness among these systems. Dr. Omar Saif stressed that the Digital Economy Enhancement Project aims to bridge this gap by linking all government systems, providing citizens with access to a wide range of services through a unified platform.
This development will streamline the process for citizens to obtain online domiciles, birth certificates, National Identity Cards (NICs), vehicle registrations, and various other services.
Furthermore, the project is expected to contribute to increased revenue generation through project-related taxes.
