Minister for Science and Technology Development, Higher Education and Information Society of Republic of Srpska Srđan Rajčević and Director of the Office for Information Technology and Electronic Governance of Serbia Mihailo Jovanović signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of digital transformation in Banja Luka yesterday.
Rajevčić said that this agreement covers several segments in the field of digital transformation, including information security in the field of electronic administration, electronic services and more.
“The agreement represents a synchronization of the efforts of Srpska and Serbia in the field of digital transformation, and our goal is for Srpska to move towards the development of this area as Serbia does,” Rajčević told reporters after signing the agreement.
He explained that the Agreement is a more detailed elaboration of the Memorandum of Science and Technology Co-operation, signed by the governments of Srpska and Serbia last year at a joint session in Belgrade.
Jovanović pointed out that the idea and concept of digital transformation in the past two years in Serbia have led to the development of a large number of information systems and e-government systems.
“We are aware that we still have a lot of work to do to raise the eGovernment system in Serbia to the level we want, and at the same time realizing the results of public administration transformation into an efficient service for citizens, the Government of Serbia has decided to launch a digital knowledge exchange program. Serbia is digitizing,” Jovanović said.
The signing of the Agreement was also attended by the Republic of Srpska Prime Minister Radovan Višković and Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić.
