Japan will have a digital reform ministry
A new ministry for digital reform will be created in Japan by the fall of 2021. This was reported on Friday by the Japanese business newspaper Nikkei.
It is noted that the main task of the department should be the digitalization of government activities. It is emphasized that the country's authorities took such a step because of the coronavirus pandemic, which revealed a number of problems in the government's activities, including a lack of efficiency in coordination and a low speed of administrative procedures.
The new Prime Minister of Japan Yoshihide Suga, when forming his government, has already approved a new post of Minister for Digital Reform вЂ” he was Takuya Harai, who was responsible for the development of science and technology in the government of Shinzo Abe.
On August 16, the Japanese parliament approved Yoshihide Sugu as the new prime minister, who had been elected chairman of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) two days earlier. In the government of the retired Shinzo Abe, he invariably held the post of secretary-general of the Cabinet.
