The High Conservative Minister for Digitization also considered that “the ultimate goal of digitization lies in establishing a new model for the management of public and economic departments, bodies, and institutions by moving from classical paper-based management to digital governance, which is based primarily on the widespread use of modern digital technologies in order to enhance the principles of transparency and consolidate the relationship between… Administration and citizens, and facilitating administrative transactions and procedures by ensuring the provision of quality, safe and fast public services at the lowest cost.”
