According to the Ministry of Finance in Egypt, the country is well on its way towards achieving digital transformation and attaining the goals of financial inclusion.

This is thanks to the government's electronic payment and collection system. The system launched in May which made government services more accessible to the country's citizens at their actual prices. They were made available online, through payroll, bank, prepaid or credit cards said the ministry.

In fact, the ministry has provided all administrative bodies nationwide with e-collection systems. However, some of them have been found to be unused. The need to use the new systems is of utmost importance. But equally, any surplus equipment should be returned to the competent budget authority to avoid wasting public funds and exercise strict control over state investments.
