After analyzing the suggestions, comments, together with the five-year plans of the government agencies, using the original consultation document as a blueprint and making the necessary adjustments according to the consultation, SAFP completed the Macao SAR Electronic Governance General Plan 2015-2019 which will be used as the guiding principles for the electronic governance development of the SAR.
The Macao SAR Electronic Governance General Plan 2015-2019 comprises the objectives, principles, and strategies, as well as the six major tasks for electronic governance development of the Macao SAR for the next five years.
