Kuwait pitches plan over Gulf eGov system

Riyadh, Kuwait on Wednesday submitted an idea over how to go about compiling

reports on the progress of establishing an e-government (eGOV) system in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

The Kuwaiti proposal calls for more interaction among concerned bodies in the GCC as member states work on setting up an integrated eGOV system, said Dr. Walid Al-Hasawi, an advisor at the Gulf state’s Central Agency for Information Technology.

The Kuwaiti suggestion, made during talks involving an ad hoc committee tasked with looking into the matter, also underlines the need to achieve common objectives, which should be aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, he added.
