The United Nations has published E-Government Development Index-2016 (EGDI), according to which Ukraine is 62nd among 193 countries and climbed by 25 points compared to 2014, Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said.
"I think and I have always thought that e-technologies are an effective tool to provide for transparency and efficiency of authorities in modern conditions, fighting corruption, increasing the quality of servicing and attracting citizens. That's why wherever I worked – at the city council, parliament and government – I have always actively worked on their introduction," Groysman wrote on his Facebook page.
He said that Ukraine's climbing in the rating is an important achievement.
Commenting on the further introduction of e-technologies by Ukrainian authorities, the prime minister said that today first e-government development is among top priorities at the national level.
"The top priority action plan says what must be done and achieved this year and then next three years, in particular, in the following directions: open data development, electronic procurement, electronic services, electronic relations, electronic identification and other things," he wrote.
