Riyadh- Saudi Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan has inaugurated, in his headquarters in Riyadh, Itimad portal for governmental e-services, under the framework of Saudi Vision 2030, to empower government bodies to implement their Saudi Vision 2030 projects, starting from National Transformation Program 2020.

Itimad e-portal services are available for 79 governmental parties, 18 offices (responsible for achieving the vision), rationalizing office and the administrations of following up transactions and budget in the Ministry of Finance.

Jadaan lauded the significance of Itimad since it falls under the digital transformation of all government transactions and reinforces the fruitful and effective communication among ministries and bodies concerned in executing the projects of Saudi Vision 2030 and National Transformation Program 2020.

Further, the portal offers e-services that contribute to effective spending, saving time and reducing administrative and procedural effort between the Ministry of Finance and beneficiaries – thus leading to quicker procedures and better results.

Ahmad al-Souyan, the ministry’s deputy for technical and development affairs, said that “Itimad is a digital platform to provide several financial electronic services.” He added that the ministry is seeking to expand digital services and issue new licenses to empower government bodies and the private sector within the goals of Saudi Vision 2030.
