Information about the project
Asan Imza - Azerbaijan national Mobile eID and legally binding e-signature
Asan Imza
Asan Imza since 2013, is Azerbaijan's National mobile eID system. It allows people to prove their identity and give e-signatures that are legally equivalent to face-to-face identification & handwritten signatures when using e-services such as online banking, exactly the same way as a regular passport at a branch office of a bank. It is the backbone of any modern e-society saving hundreds of millions of working hours per year. Since then, Azerbaijan has become a global Digital ID success story. It has balanced its economy, grown its national wealth and, thanks to having one of the most transparent, business friendly environments in the region, it has leapt ahead in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Index. Most notably, Azerbaijan has become a major digital trade hub – a leading factor behind the country's 27% rise in non-oil exports. Along with international trade, foreign direct investments have skyrocketed, reaching more than US$738 million in the first 6 months of 2017. Today the country benefits from having the world's most advanced digital identity ecosystem, which gives Azerbaijan's financial environment unprecedented security, transparency and reliability.Results of its implementation on Azerbaijan: • 90% of tax declarations are completed online • 100% of labor contracts are completed online • 100% of B2B invoices are issued online • 600 public and private-sector e-services are available. • 30 million digital signatures were made in the first 3 years • 100% of customs declarations are completed online • Zero incidents of security breaches or identity frauds • Establishing a company can be done in 5 minutes
