Bulgaria Moves toward E-Govt with Paper-Free Foreign Min
Bulgaria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has become the country's first paper-free ministry by discarding all paper document flow, it announced Tuesday.
"The move to e-administration in the future is inexorable and there is no point in resisting this," Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov

"The next important stage in the process of introducing e-governance is the use of the system in the work of consular services," explained Minister Mladenov.
He added that the e-system was currently being being tested in Bulgarian missions abroad, and implementation it will enable consular services to be extended to places where Bulgaria has no diplomatic representation.
