The Foreign Ministry will undergo a major digitization plan to streamline public services overseas, caretaker Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil announced at an event in Beirut Thursday.The caretaker minister said this could potentially set an example for all other ministries by building Lebanon's first cohesive online system.Bassil is likely to remain at the helm of the ministry after a new Cabinet is formed.In regard to security of the online process, Bassil said the confidentiality of documents was assured using a "built-in" system between embassies and the ministry directly. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017, Bassil explained.
