E-government, or better said, the use of online services for delivering public services, has brought good news to the Turkish government which managed to streamline several procedures related to the access of the population of public services offered by the central or local authorities.
According to the UN, Turkey climbed 15 places in the E-Government Index for 2018 and now ranks 53rd at a global level. The higher ranking is the result of the integration of digital services with the plan of reducing bureaucracy. The process took 18 months; however, Turkey now has 1,600 e-government services.

The EGID report issued by the UN assesses countries on a 0 to 1 scale, based on 3 dimensions. These are the online service index (OSI), the inherent human capital scored through the human capital index (HCI) and the status of the development of telecommunication infrastructure rated through the telecommunication infrastructure index (TII).
In 2018, Turkey had an overall score of 0.7112, while in the sub-indexes it scored 0.8889 in the OSI, 0.8148 in the HCI and 0.4298 in the TII.
Through the new e-government policies, Turkey managed to increase its productivity levels and has facilitated the citizens’ access to several public services while enhancing their experience with the authorities. Also, the new programs have helped Turkish citizens to get accustomed to the changes in technology.
