Manama, Jan. 30 (BNA): Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Minister, Essam bin Abdulla Khalaf, has announced that 27 municipal services have become electronic.

Khalaf asserted that “Digital Transformation” is a strategic project that is consistent with the Economic Vision for Bahrain 2030, the Government Action Plan 2019-2022 and the policies of the Information and e-Government Authority (iGA).

The minister pointed out that the transformation of the municipal services into e-services has been carried out in coordination and cooperation with iGA, praising iGA’s support to the Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry.
