Djibouti has embarked on an ambitious effort to digitize its public services. This initiative aims to allow the country to reap the full benefits of the digital economy.

The Djiboutian government announced the upcoming launch of two new digital services: e-Cabinet and e-Building Permit. Unveiled at the 8th Council of Ministers session on Tuesday, May 14th, these initiatives aim to modernize governance, enhance administrative efficiency, and offer a digital solution for building permits.

Developed by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Innovation with technical support from the National Agency for State Information Systems (ANSIE), e-Cabinet expands the government's document management capabilities. This platform caters to high-level decision-making by providing advanced features for managing proposals, agendas, reference documents, and legal texts throughout their lifecycle. Additionally, it ensures seamless interaction between various government systems, centralizing document management and fostering secure communication.

As for the e-Building Permit platform, it will replace the current building permit issuance system which is now considered outdated. This new solution includes an online portal offering significant advantages for all stakeholders involved in the building permit issuance process. Key features include simplified permit submission, online payments, and real-time tracking of applications.

The deployment of these platforms is part of the "Djibouti Fondement Numérique," a project that also includes the development of national broadband infrastructure, the promotion of e-learning, and the improvement of the quality of telecommunications services at affordable prices.

These digital solutions are expected to digitize government decision-making processes, facilitate secure communication and document sharing between ministries and government entities, and significantly save time in processing services.
