  • Libyan government launches ‘‘Hakomitna’’ an interactive e-platform for communication with Libyan people

  • A New Libya sets sights on GIS and SDI technology

    The first International Libyan Conference on E-Government was held in July in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, a week after the Country's first ever free elections. Organized by the College of Electronics Technology of Bani Walid, the purpose of the conference was to bring together government, university and other community interests with international experts to share ideas and experiences about e-Government and its role in addressing societal issues and provide guiding principles towards the establishment of a national e-Government roadmap for the new Libya.

    GPC President Mark Sorensen was invited to address the assembly of nearly 300 persons to introduce the audience to geographic information system (GIS) and spatial data infrastructure (SDI) concepts and practices internationally, and to relay the experience of the Libya Spatial Data Infrastructure (LSDI) program initiated in 2005.

  • E-Government: Libyan Plan towards Better Services

    Electronic Government (E-Government) essentially refers to the employment of information technologies and systems, communication technologies and other web-based telecommunication technologies to improve the efficiency of services delivery in the public sector and government agencies, and there are four main delivery models of e-government which are government to citizen, government to business government to employee and government to government.

    The ultimate goal of the e-government is to be able to offer an increased portfolio of public services to citizens in an efficient and cost effective way and the main advantage while implementing electronic government will be to improve the efficiency of the current system (Paper based system). That would in return save money and time.

  • LY: The National ID Number and e-Passport projects

    The Libyan government announced on February 8 the issuance of NID (National Identification) numbers to all Libyan citizens, and the revelation of the new Libyan e-Passport in a presentation by the Deputy Prime Minister. These projects had been initially launched during the time of the Gaddafi regime and were mostly operational when the revolution started in 2011.

    What’s puzzling in the announcement is the fact that the current government did not take into account all the flaws that marred these projects, specifically the NID Project, nor did it do a proper analysis or study of them. Most advanced countries do not have an NID system but rather a Social Number that is only relevant to the Tax and Social Services. Contrary to international standards in the field, Libya is still insisting on continuing a project that was based on a security-phobic regime and not concerned in facilitating services to its citizens.

  • Quiet Revolutionary Wants Technology to Transform Libya

    It isn’t often you get the chance to meet a real revolutionary. It is a term cheapened by misuse, but Khaled el Mufti is a revolutionary. It is no exaggeration to say that the role he played in the Libyan uprising last year was crucial; had he and his telecoms team failed, it isn’t hard to think that Col. Muammar Gadhafi might still be in power.

    Today, Mr. Mufti is a telecoms adviser to the interim government and heads the e-Libya initiative, a bold plan to use the transformative powers of technology to modernize the Libyan state, overturning 40 years of corruption and misrule under Gadhafi.
