An exhibition entitled ‘e-Gov for a Modern Macedonia, emphasized Macedonia’s progress in using information technology (IT) to improve efficiency and transparency organised by the USAID-funded e-Gov Project, which is implemented by Internews Network.
The exhibition was organized in partnership with Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft. Through e-Government, public administration can become more open and transparent, and reinforce democratic participation. The e-Gov Project has been assisting public institutions in the Republic of Macedonia to increase their efficiency and transparency and to open new channels for doing business. On display at the exhibition were some of the solutions developed as part of the consolidated package of assistance, including the Apply On-Line system for state jobs; the e-Procurement system; e-Tax Services; the e-Health system; and e-Budgeting. Also on display were digital certificates, which, with assistance provided by the USAID-funded e-Gov project, can now be issued in Macedonia.
