December 12, 2016
A seminar on the theme ‘Efficient e-Government for Competitive Enterprises’ was organised last week in Jerusalem by the EU-funded project Enhancement of the Business Environment in the Southern Mediterranean Project (EBESM). The event brought together more than 90 participants, representing Israeli government agencies and institutions, and five EU experts.
The seminar addressed ways to enhance Israeli efforts in developing and implementing e-government solutions which will allow reducing the administrative burden and red tapes both on government, on businesses and on users.
It builds on the results of the first seminar that was held in Jerusalem in September 2014 and aimed at deepening some topics in the domain of administrative simplification and digitalisation.
The seminar highlighted EU level as well as national efforts related to e-Gov Services where in particular e-ID and open data and/or shared data constitute important elements. Examples where presented from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Austria and the European Union.
The EBESM project aims to contribute to the improvement of the business enabling environment for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) in the ENP South through the strengthening of technical expertise and capacity of targeted public and private stakeholders.
