On the outcomes of the meeting, the establishment of a digital Government was initiated and the deadlines for the submission of candidatures by the Ministries for the positions of Deputy Ministers for Digital Development, Digital Transformations and Digitization were set.
On May 7, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal chaired a meeting to discuss topical issues of digital transformation with the participation of Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov and other Government members.
Denys Shmyhal stressed that the situation that arose in connection with the spread of the pandemic, spurred the country into action towards the maximum transition to digitization.
"I personally guarantee the political will of our Government for digital transformation. This is the prospect of the country's development and the way towards rooting out corruption. Because digitalization enables eliminating corruption risks from all levels, from the top to the level of provision of administrative services in the most remote region," said the Head of Government.
With this purpose, the Prime Minister instructed within two weeks to introduce the position of Deputy Minister for Digital Development, Digital Transformation and Digitization (CDTO) in all Ministries which lack such a post.
Besides, within a month, proposals for candidates for this position must be submitted to the Prime Minister of Ukraine for consideration in line with the established procedure.
"The President's program clearly states that the State must change, become comfortable and high-quality. However, at that, it must become reliable and efficient in terms of providing services by the state," said Denys Shmyhal.
