Now in a pandemic, it is important for us to create comfortable and safe conditions for everyone. One of the new processes in our country is the digital transformation.

Avoiding queues and bureaucratic processes. Another good example of digitization is the translation of documents from paper to electronic format. This will greatly facilitate the flow of documents and the provision of public services for citizens. In addition, holders of e-passports can travel within the country without a paper counterpart.Anastasia Bondar, Head of Digital Transformation Dept of Odessa region
