UAE to implement Portuguese government modernisation scheme

 

The government explained that the MoU was signed in Dubai on Monday at the ‘World Government Summit’, a global benchmark event held every year with more than 3,000 participants from 130 countries.

 

"Among the bilateral cooperation areas are public participation, innovation, digital transformation, leadership and skills development and mobile phone services", the same source said.

 

This MoU follows previous agreements with other countries.

 

Portugal and Egypt agreed in Cairo in 2017 on the sale of programmes, concepts and technical assistance related with the Portuguese Simplex programme.

 

Morocco contracted the "MySNS Carteira", which collates citizens’ health information in a smartphone App and the "Public Administration Interoperability", a central platform that allows easy citizen and company access to multichannel electronic services.

 

At the World Government Summit, Portugal was also part of the founding group of countries that undersigned the Joint Declaration of the Global Happiness Coalition, as a way of promoting social well-being and development.

 

The coalition wants to create a space for global dialogue that encourages the disclosure of experiences among member countries that undertake a commitment to implement joint projects and share resources, information and knowledge.
