The release of over 35,000 permits has been expedited with the help of the Anti-Red Tape Authority as of last month.
Data from the Authority showed that it has expedited the release of at least 35,000 pending permits. This is in line with the ARTA’s commitment to fight corruption in government through streamlining and the eradication of red tape.
These figures include the 8,510 permits, license, clearance, and certifications which were automatically approved or released by numerous government agencies from the period July 2019 to June this year.
The Authority also launched its flagship National Effort for Harmonization of Efficient Measures of Inter-related Agencies Program that aims to reduce the processes, requirements, and processing time by 52 percent for five priority sectors.
This is also in line with ARTA’s belief that more efficient services can be achieved through better collaboration and innovation.
