IDB Loan to Go Toward E-Government Services

The digital transformation of the Bahamas Cabinet and all government services will soon become a reality through a $30 million Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) loan that is expected to be executed within the next two to three weeks by the country’s government, according to a cabinet minister.

State Minister for Grand Bahama Senator Kwasi Thompson said Friday that government will be moving toward a paperless Cabinet system by implementing a program called e-Cabinet, The Tribune reported.

He also said they will be adopting the model being used in Estonia to transform the country’s e-government services.

Thompson was speaking at the closing of Consumer Week, hosted by the Consumer Affairs Unit of the Ministry of Labour at the Harold DeGregory Complex, in Freeport. This year’s theme was “Trusted Smart Products.”

He spoke on behalf of Labour Minister Dion Foulkes, who was unable to attend.

“As a government, we must also be focused on digital revolution and digital transformation of our government,” Thompson told those in attendance.
