Efficiency of e-government

E-government initiative moves forward

It takes a citizen an average of 3.5 visits – about nine hours – to a government office to complete any given transaction, like obtaining a driver’s license or applying for a building permit.

Do the same thing via the Internet, though, and the time and money saved are enormous, according to Ahmed Darwish, program director for the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT)’s electronic government, or “E-government,” initiative. For every 100,000 government transactions performed on line, explained Darwish, the country saves £E 1 million.
