Digital citizen app to be launched in second half of 2024, President says

A Digital Citizen application will be launched in the second half of this year, President Nikos Christodoulides has said. 

Addressing a meeting of his Cabinet on 10 April, President Christodoulides asked all Ministers to cooperate with the relevant Deputy Ministry of Research, Innovation and Digital Policy on this matter. 

"Today one of the key issues we have before us at the Cabinet is a briefing by the Deputy Minister of Research to do with the Digital Citizen, the country's digital transformation," he said, adding that it is a matter that he would like everyone to work on as much as possible.

"Digital transformation is a priority in order to combat bureaucracy and enhance our country's competitiveness," President Christodoulides stressed. 

He explained that Digital Citizen is a platform which will offer citizens services twofold, through the internet and the portal and through an application for mobile phones.

All Ministries should have websites and give the opportunity to people to do what they need digitally, he noted.

"In the second half of 2024 I believe we will be able to launch the application so that people can start using it,"  President Christodoulides said.
