(TAP) - "As of April 16, all citizens will be able to obtain electronically and free of cost their birth certificates by logging onto the website, and the enterprises will have access online to the trade register services online by downloading an electronic application," said Prime Minister Youssef Chahed on Wednesday.

Inaugurating works of the 2nd edition of the Tunisia Digital Summit (TDS), Chahed also announced the launch on the same date of a new electronic service allowing "the transfer of mobile money" between all bank and post accounts from whatever telephone operator.

This electronic service, which will minimize paper transactions, will be generalised to all daily business transactions to simplify the citizen's life, he pointed out.

In addition, the PM announced a new measure for youth between the ages of 15 and 35 to provide them with a new electronic card (e-dinar), which will facilitate their access to cultural and sporting events and allow them to benefit from significant commercial discounts.

Digital economy is no longer a choice but a necessity to promote the national economy as the country has many skills in this sector, he added, calling young people to take the initiative and create innovative projects to convert Tunisia into a digital platform capable of exporting intelligence.

According to the Premier, digitalisation is an important means of combating corruption and improving the services provided to citizens. In this regard, 6 ministerial departments have already joined the electronic system of correspondence transfer, pending the generalisation of this system to the rest of departments before the end of the current year, he indicated.

A visual electronic certification system will also be put in place to guarantee the security of electronic documents such as salaries, scientific diplomas, invoices, banking documents and work certificates with a view to simplifying procedures for citizens and combating fraud, he promised
