Launch of more Government services accessible on mobiles – total of 1,200 services

The public service has continued to spread its online service into the energy, justice and businesses sectors. Principal Permanent Secretary Mario Cutajar stated this is the fourth packet of online services since the launch of the strategy for Government services to be available on a 24-hour daily basis.

The spread of more online public services by the Public Service includes household water management, agriculture, the needs of disabled persons, the environmental sector, energy and places of interest, applications for driving licences and other services for businesses through the launch of the fourth package of online services. Mr Cutajar pointed out that this is a continuation of the public service strategy for all Government services to be available daily on a 24-hour basis. There are over 1,200 Government services online so far.

“This fourth package covers various services in particular sectors of energy, businesses and justice.  It follows three other packages on which we have been working to ensure the best service and top quality are available.”

Mr Cutajar added that the last five years have seen an investment of some 150 million euro so that nearly all Government services are provided online including through apps.

Referring to teleworking by Public Service staff, Mr Cutajar said this system has been implemented in the public service well before the spread of the coronavirus, adding that it will remain and will be strengthened through Remote Working so that one will be able to work from anywhere.
