The absence of a paperless regime has been named as one of the key factors hindering the development of Ghana’s public sector.
Key institutions in Ghana’s public sector still rely heavily on paper, leading to waste in time and resources.
Moving such institutions onto a paperless regime still remains a huge challenge for Ghanaian authorities.
However participants of Citi FM’s Hello Kigali Business Tour were today given access to key organizations in Rwanda that have successfully rolled out the system.
Two of such are Rwanda’s judiciary services and its land centre, which is equivalent to Ghana’s Lands Commission.
Authorities of the two institutions revealed to the participants how they made the change, how they overcame the challenges associated with the regime change as well as the benefits they have accrued in becoming paperless institutions.
President of the High commercial court of Rwanda Emmanuel Kamere speaking to Citi Business News after the meeting pledged Rwanda’s support in helping Ghana to also achieve that feat.
“We no longer have people queuing in our registries so we think we are doing well but we also need to learn from our friends and neighbors. We also need to learn from Ghana’s experience so the best thing now is to try and keep networking so that we can be exchanging experiences in the future,” he said.
“Most of you are in the communication industry like Citi FM so we will be networking. Any time you want to benefit from our experiences, we are ready to assist and we hope you will also be ready to assist us when we seek your cooperation,” Mr. Kamere added.
The hello Kigali tour enters day four tomorrow (January 27, 2017).
Participants will meet with the Mayor of Kigali City, visit the Rwandan Registrar General, CEO of the Rwandan Private Sector Federation as well as take part in a Kigali city tour which will end a the Genocide Memorial.
