Government approves National Digital Citizenship Programme

Hungary's government has approved the National Digital Citizenship Programme aimed at creating the conditions for simple, convenient and efficient administration, the Digital Hungary Agency said on Friday.

The uniform digital environment ensured by the programme streamlines communication between government bodies and citizens, the agency told MTI.

The programme 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 programme’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.
