“Efficient Online Administrative Procedures in Brussels

Some 84% of administrative procedures in the Brussels-Capital Region are accessible online, compared to 75% in the European Union. This is what emerged on Monday from a study by the Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (Ibsa) commissioned by the Brussels Minister for the Digital Transition Bernard Clerfayt (Défi).

The Region scores above the European average on the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI), used and developed by the European Commission to compare the digital performance of Member States. Brussels reaches 58%, far behind Denmark (70%) but ahead of the EU-27 average (51%).
