IT: Ac­cess Granted

Economy of Belarus - - FRONT PAGE -

It will be eas­ier for Be­laru­sians to deal with many vi­tal mat­ters via the World Wide Web. Th­ese could be get­ting loans, reg­is­ter­ing real es­tate own­er­ship rights, and reg­is­ter­ing their ve­hi­cles with traf­fic po­lice. Plans have been made to ac­cel­er­ate the tran­si­tion to dig­i­tal ser­vices. The es­tab­lish­ment of a univer­sal sys­tem to iden­tify nat­u­ral per­sons and le­gal per­sons is nearly fin­ished. A root cer­ti­fi­ca­tion au­thor­ity is be­ing in­tro­duced. Prepa­ra­tions are un­der­way to unite all the govern­ment dig­i­tal ser­vices. The changes will al­low us­ing dig­i­tal sig­na­ture keys to or­der the ser­vices that now re­quire per­sonal vis­its to mul­ti­ple govern­ment agen­cies and in­sti­tu­tions. More­over, the in­tro­duc­tion of national iden­ti­fi­ca­tion cards will be­gin in the next two years. The cards will en­able cit­i­zens to get doc­u­ments, pay for mer­chan­dise, and claim ben­e­fits. Di­rec­tor of the National Cen­ter for Dig­i­tal Ser­vices An­drei ILYIN tells the Econ­omy of Be­larus Mag­a­zine what in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy nov­el­ties the coun­try should ex­pect.
