By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Government of Belize has embarked on a program to digitize its entire system to keep up with the modern world.
“From getting a copy of your birth certificate… to receiving your passport… applying for a piece of land… and having one national identification,” wrote Prime Minister John Briceño on social media in reference to
“Our digital agenda is a path to national system efficiencies and governance effectiveness that is inclusive and seeks to put people and the country’s development at the center,” he added.
The Prime Minister’s comments came as the Ministry of Youth, Sports, & E-Governance launched the National Digital Agenda 2022-2025 through its E-Governance and Digitalization Unit.
“Government will embrace digitalization as the engine which will empower the provision of all its services and the access to all the services offered by the government. Digital government on a global scale is designed to strengthen public governance and to make government more accountable, efficient and effective,” said Minister of Youth, Sports, & E-Governance Kevin Bernard at the launching.
“This is what this administration promised our people, accountability in an era where accountability in government had become non-existent, efficient and effective governance at a time when it is not only demanded by the changing world around us but is critical as a global pandemic threatens our way of life.”
A Digital Belize is also a part of Plan Belize as proposed by the present government.
In promoting the recently held Belize Investment Summit, Briceño said digitizing the government would facilitate doing business in and with Belize. This is one of the necessary changes the government is doing to “create an environment conducive to economic transformation”.
