Lithuania takes a leading position in the European Union as regards the e-government services, claims the German TV Deutsche Welle.

“No other European country has achieved this much of progress in e-government services as Lithuania. Businesses may keep contact with the authorities on the Internet. There will hardly be anyone who would not be using electronic Parking. New-borns are also registered online”, says the German TV.

The TV footage also points out a high degree of public confidence in personal data protection measures applied by the public authorities.

The full footage is available here.

It is every year that the Lithuanian authorities introduce new e-services. For instance, now the Office of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania and the Information Society Development Committee under the Ministry of Transport and Communications run a joint EU-funded project “Development of Electronic Democracy Services in the Government of the Republic of Lithuania”, which aims to increase the transparency, accountability, and quality of decision-making in public administration.
