More than 60 million people are already using the Turkish e-Government (e-Devlet) public services system, said Ali Taha Koch, the head of the Office of Electronic Transformations under the Turkish Presidential Administration.
According to him, this form of organizing the activities of public authorities is fast and safe, in fact, representing the “electronic interface” of the Republic of Turkey.
Koch said that interest in e-Devlet services has skyrocketed in recent years amid restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He recalled that the first steps to introduce the e-government system were taken in Turkey back in 2008, and today 6,665 services of 886 various ministries and departments can be used online.
“The number of e-Devlet users exceeds 60 million, about 91 percent of Turkish citizens over the age of 15. Users can use both one service and a package of electronic services, which is very convenient and minimizes time and costs,” he said.
