Nine New eServices Presented to the citizens of Šabac

  • Šabac, 10 November 2021

The Swiss PRO Programme organised an event in Šabac as part of the "Let’s Click Together" campaign. In the city square, the benefits of using electronic services at the local level were presented to the citizens, and they were explained how they can access the eGovernment portal, register and start one of the eServices.

From now on, the citizens of Šabac can use nine new electronic services developed by the city administration with the support of the Government of Switzerland through the Swiss PRO Programme and in cooperation with the Office for Information Technology and Electronic Administration.

"It is a great pleasure that with the assistance of the Government of Switzerland and the Swiss PRO Programme, the city of Šabac has received nine new eServices today through the eGovernment portal. In this way, we reach out to our fellow citizens who will be able to exercise their rights and public services made available to them in an innovative, faster and more appropriate way. The city administration is reaching out to its fellow citizens, so that they do not have to come to the administration front offices and waste their time. Instead, they can get information and exercise their rights through the eGovernment at a click" said Aleksandar Pajić, the mayor of Šabac.

Through the eGovernment portal, residents of Šabac can now submit a request for salary compensation for maternity leave, compensation for in vitro fertilization or the issuance of location information, report a communal problem or submit petitions to the communal, traffic and environmental inspection. In addition, some of the new eServices available to the residents of Šabac are also to submit an objection to the draft planning document as well as to a decision on the development of a planning document during a public inspection.

"New electronic services have been developed with the support of the Government of Switzerland and in cooperation with the Office for Information Technology and Electronic Administration and our common goal is to improve the efficiency of the local self-government on the one hand and, on the other hand, citizens' satisfaction with services provided. As of today, the citizens of Šabac can exercise certain rights and electronically access services which are under the remit of the local self-government" said Maida Jusufović, Swiss PRO Programme Officer for Good Governance and Gender Equality.

The campaign “Let’s Click Together” is a part of the Programme “Enhancing Good Governance and Social Inclusion for Municipal Development – Swiss PRO“, supported by the Government of Switzerland in cooperation with the Government of Serbia, and implemented by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in partnership with the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities (SCTM).
