The newly appointed Minister of State for Information Technology (IT) Affairs Adel Afiouni said Friday that the priority of his ministry is to create an electronic government in Lebanon, according to Voice of Lebanon radio channel.
"We need to approve new legislations for the creation of electronic government in Lebanon," Afiouni said.
Afiouni added that he will aim to use IT in the process of advancing the economic sector in Lebanon as well.
Lebanon lags behind countries around the world in terms of e-government services that allow citizens to avoid red tape.
President Michel Aoun announced last year that the digitization of government services is a key pillar of Lebanon's economic reform to combat corruption in state institutions.
