The Hungarian government has approved the National Digital Citizenship Program aimed at creating the conditions for simple, convenient and efficient administration.
According to the Digital Hungary Agency, the uniform digital environment ensured by the program streamlines communication between government bodies and citizens. The program is aimed at creating public administration spaces that are accessible online at any given time and suitable for managing any administrative needs that can be handled in person. The program’s founding document puts the main focus on digital citizenship, the agency said, adding that it also covers the utilisation of national data assets and the application of cloud technology. By the end of the first strategic phase set for 2026, people will be able to handle almost all matters relating to public administration online, the agency said. The development of the most important services will begin as early as 2023, they added.
