Peruvian congressman Manuel Portugal has held a working session to develop a proposal aiming for the implementation of e-government in the country, according to the congressional communications office.
Portugal, who is also president of the decentralization, regionalization, local governments and modernization committee of the Peruvian congress, aims to standardize information from both the national government and sub-national governments, in order to streamline processes.
The working session was attended by representatives from several institutions, including the Spanish cooperation agency AECID, the World Bank and regional development bank CAF.
The proposals presented include updating regulations regarding the modernization of state management in both regional and local governments, whose organic laws date back more than a decade and do not have technological support.
Additionally, an assessment was proposed to determine the barriers for efficiency in public management.
