In a move towards the technological cutting edge , Bulgaria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has become the country’s first paperless institution, according to Novinite.com.
This system of e-administration, which ends all internal use of physical paper, is expected to save around $66,000 per year–not counting the environmental benefits of using less paper. The ministry is currently testing the system in Bulgarian consulates worldwide with the end goal of offering consular services to places lacking a diplomatic presence.
Other countries have experimented with the digitization of government services. Most notably, Estonia is known for their e-government program, which uses a digital ID card to move interactions with government agencies online. In addition, most registrations and other basic interactions can be done through Estonia’s e-government website.
