First-ever ‘electronic cabinet’ meeting

President Nicos Anastasiades on Wednesday chaired the first-ever e-government cabinet meeting.

Each minister was given a laptop with a special interface with electronic access to cabinet affairs for easy transfer of digital documents.

“The system provides several tools, such as storage, history of previous versions of documents, data security, as well as indexing and retrieval of documents,” a statement said…

“Also, the system supports real-time updating and recalling of  documents and procedures.”

The move into the 21st century is part of the state’s e-government programme, which envisions a paperless system.

“The productive use of electronic management and handling of documents should ensure multiple and significant savings,” the announcement added.

“The ultimate goal is to simplify procedures and reduce red tape and costs,”

Existing resources were used to set up the system and there was no additional cost to the state, the cabinet announcement said.
