In his speech, the president indicated that Starting in September, public institutions will have the program “Zero bureaucracy”, which will start with a first phase.
“I want to tell you that this issue of zero bureaucracy with the single government portal they will access there for all permissions; all institutions are going to have their one-stop shop,” said the president.
He pointed out that the last meeting they had with those in charge of the zero bureaucracy program was held last week and there they were talking about the efficiency of the execution of the initiative.
The head of state also explained that the weaknesses that public entities have is capturing the quality of the contracted companies.
