Demand for e-signatures to significantly increase in Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 7 / Trend, Trend H.Veliyev /
The population's need in electronic digital signature will increase significantly when the state institutions will provide services on the "E-government" portal, where it can be used, the Ministry's Information Society Development Department Chief Consultant Etibar Umudov told Trend on Friday.
The "E-government" portal will be a key tool for supporting work with citizens and enterprises of state and private sectors.
Launch of the portal will reduce the number of documents requested from citizens due to the fact that different authorities will interact with each other in electronic form.
Umudov said e-signature will be the main tool in the use of e-services, as its presence will be necessary for authentication on the "E-government" portal.
"Today, the need in electronic signature more tangible in the state agencies," Umudov said.
By late first half of 2013, the total number of e-services that will be provided on the "E-government" portal in Azerbaijan will hit 300 units. The portal is expected to be launched by late 2012.
