Secretary points to digital public services as a solution to the fiscal crisis facing Brazil

Digital transformation

For Paulo Uebel, the citizen deserves a government based on the best international practices

"Digital transformation will be decisive for the future of Brazil." In his analysis, the Special Secretary of Debureaucratization, Management and Digital Government of the Ministry of Economy, Paulo Uebel, went straight to the point. He spoke at the opening of the panel on the agenda for the country's digital transformation in the 63rd Panel Telebrasil, on Wednesday (22/5).

According to the secretary, a public policy without data, without evidence, is "based on considerations." For him, it is technology that will help fill that gap and thus generate more benefits for society.

Uebel also defended that Brazilian citizens deserve a government based on the best international practices. "We are going to look for the best practices in the world, the right countries, that have followed a successful digital government strategy. We will copy what has worked, adapting to the reality of Brazil," he said.

The Telebrasil 2019 Panel is being held from Tuesday to Thursday (21 to 23) in Brasília, bringing together government, companies, policymakers, regulators and investors from the information and communication technologies universe.

Solution

Ciro Avelino, Assistant Secretary for Digital Government, who participated in the panel "Public Policies and Strategies for Smart Cities", on Tuesday afternoon (21/5), explained that a great solution to the fiscal crisis facing Brazil is the qualification of the provision of public services from the digital transformation.

In the view of the federal government, said the assistant secretary, it is not simply the massive and intensive application of technology in the provision of public services. "It is starting to observe the needs of a society that is already digital, already has the habit of relating to each other in a digital way and has this expectation of the government," he said.
