According to the UN report “e-Government Survey 2018”, published on Thursday, Greece now belongs to the group of the most advanced countries in e-government. Greece’s ranking was upgraded by 8 places, and thus Greece climbed to the 35th place from the 43rd place in 2016. In fact, the results are even better when it comes to particular indexes, such as the E-participation index where Greece’s ranking was upgraded by 31 places.

This report is based on the analysis of a country’s progress in using e-government, which may help in handling the emerging issues of public administration and supporting the implementation of the internationally agreed development goals. The survey assesses the preparedness and capacity of a state’s public administration to use technology when providing public services, while the E-participation index focuses on the use of online services to citizens, e-consultation and participation in the decision-making process.
