By Huseyn Valiyev – Trend:

Every citizen of Azerbaijan will get their own “electronic cabinet”, acting on the principle of a “single window’, Azerbaijani Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies Center told Trend.

The center said the e-cabinet will allow to access to all the available e-services.

The new portal will become available for general use after the issuance of the new generation of identity cards.

“The electronic cabinet” will include personal information on the citizens, for example their payment transactions or utility payments. All the data will be stored in a single system.

The platform is said to host services of both government and private entities.

The source in the center said the portal will be launched in parallel with the issuance of new identity cards.

Meanwhile, the e-signature on the new IDs will be used as key to accessing various services on the portal, such as internet banking, insurance, online payments, as well as services of the e-government(e-gov.az), said the source.

“In parallel, our efforts are also aimed at recognizing e-signatures in other countries, and we are planning to create a new infrastructure, the so-called certification center, which will play the role of a bridge with the countries of the region. Today we are negotiating with Turkey and defining approaches for implementing this," said the center.

According to the source, this will allow citizens to open bank accounts in Turkey, without leaving home or office.

"At the moment we are working on mutual m recognition of e-signature also with other countries,” said the center.
