Lebanese Forces party organized on Thursday a seminar under the title of "Electronic Government (EGovernment) the state in the service of the citizen", with the participation of Minister of Social Protection and Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Estonia, Margus Tsahkna, Communications expert in NORTAL, Engineer Wassim Abou Saab, and a number of figures as well as MPs, ministers or their representatives.

The seminar started with a speech delivered by Lebanese Forces Leader, Samir Geagea, in which he said: "For the second time, in less than a year, we host in this room an E-government conference. Many may wonder why we care about this file that seems to be a minor issue compared with the general situation, from security files to economic and regional files."

Geagea continued by saying that the public policy remains ink on paper in the absence of good implementation. "Therefore, we care about the future and we will always be ready to fight corruption in government departments, and provide essential services to citizens."

"We do not claim to invent the E-government or to own a patent, since it is already implemented in many countries, particularly in Estonia and Germany, but we have also seen attempts to apply it in Lebanon. Thus, we are trying today to revive this concept, which aims to adopt the internet in all public services in order to improve the performance of the public sector and facilitate the citizen's life," he added.

Geagea pointed out that workshops started after the 2015 E-goverment conference surveyed by meetings of the follow-up group, competent authorities, experts, and technicians that lead to a proposal for a new law, consistent with the requirements of E-government.

"The most important outcome that we aspire for through the application of E-government, is the enhancement of the transparency of the state and the improvement of its performance in citizen matters," Geagea remarked, adding that some files would have been treated differently if we had E-government.

"I would like to specify that E-government is not a mere reform idea but rather constitutes one of the pillars of building a modern and powerful democratic republic, in which the state is in the service of the citizen and not vice versa," Geagea concluded.
