Poland wants telcos to help provide eGovernment

Published on: 05/12/2016

In November, Poland’s Ministry of Digitisation signed an agreement with telecom operators to remove barriers to eGovernment services.

According to the Ministry, telecom companies and banks are eager to join government initiatives for eGovernment services. One example would be Mobile Connect - a mobile eID solution, allowing authentication and verification of citizens using a mobile device.

In November, Poland’s Minister of Digitisation, Anna Streżyńska, met with representatives of the country’s ICT trade group and telecom companies, and signed an agreement on cooperation on eCommerce and eGovernment services.

The Ministry writes that the agreement is one step towards achieving the eGovernment targets that five years from now, 80% of all transactions involving public administrations should be electronic. That goal is part of Poland’s government modernisation plan ‘From a paper to a digital Poland’ - which was presented this summer.
