The new opportunities are brought to citizens with the implementation of the Trembita electronic interaction system between various state registries, the press service of the EU Delegation in Ukraine announced on Friday, November 17, according to DW.
The Trembita project, created in line with the Estonian model, will be launched in the coming months. It is intended to simplify and boost interaction of citizens with state agencies, as well as reduce the bureaucracy level. Thanks to the system, 98% of government services will be available online. For example, the procedure for issuing social assistance at the birth of a child will take just a day instead of 10.
