SA’S MPUMALANGA PRVINCE CREATES WEB SITE
The Mpumalanga government has launched a new Web site to help it keep in touch with the people of the province as well as provide some of government’s services online. In one of his last duties as Mpumalanga Premier, Ndaweni Mahlangu said last week that the Web site would play an important part in ensuring that people had access to government.
Mahlangu says the provincial government’s goal is to put the latest technology at the service of the citizens of the province by providing information that people need when they need it.
"We believe that this Web site will be one of the most visited sites on the Web. People in Mpumalanga and the country, indeed worldwide, must be able to find critical information about our government’s response to creating work and fighting poverty," he says.
The Web site will make government transactions, information and services much more accessible to all of those who use them as well as provide information on provincial news and projects, Mahlangu says.
"This will include being able to apply for a passport, ID document, pension or student loan online. Likewise, businesses can search for business opportunities or submit their names as service providers."
The Web site also provides information about the province, government departments, provincial municipalities, links to other provincial governments and national government, business and economics within the province, specialised services, tenders and travel information.
