Under the current government the focus is now on improving the transparency and accountability of the local councils through using technology. Most of the innovative mechanisms are available with the international platform which could be customized to our requirements, These technologies are widely tested and developed hence could be adopt effectively. As the National Association we feel being partner of URAIA, we would be able to acquire knowledge on new technology that are innovated and used by other countries.
