Senior level officials of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Georgia provided solutions to enhance work flow automation, enable officials to digitally sign and disseminate official documents thence replacing the slow and rather expensive paper-based methods. Authorized access to sensitive documents will be made possible through security and trust solutions to establish the identities of authorized personnel within the Ministry. The project considered the interoperability of the new solutions with existing information technology systems at the Ministry. Started in July 2003, this project is now operational.


In partnership with the Telemedicine Foundation of Russia, ITU implemented a telemedicine project. The project, known as transtelephonic electro cardiogram (ECG) transmission will give patients living far from medical centers the opportunity of getting advice from a cardiologist using simple telephone connection (2000).

This project is now operational (2004).
