The Ministry of Finance launched a blog Tuesday in order to directly communicate with Egyptian citizens regarding the economic and financial situation in the country, a Wednesday statement from the ministry said.
Basic financial information will be posted on the blog, mofegy.blogspot.com, to allow the public to effectively engage in open discussions, which will be monitored by Minister of Finance Hany Kadry Dimian along with a specialised team, the statement added.
Ministry experts will arrange, classify and repost citizens’ discussions and suggestions, “and they will be considered in outlining the country’s financial policies if met with wide acceptance,” the ministry added.
In a similar move, interim Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb initiated in March a call centre service to receive complaints from citizens and “directly communicate with [them], define their problems and take all necessary measures to solve such problems in a timely manner”.
The complaints will be delivered to relevant ministries and government authorities for examination and will be taken into account in the formation of the country’s development plans, a statement from the cabinet said in March.
