The Parliamentary Select Committee on Finance is the latest to advocate for a collaboration between government and IT giant, Subah Infosolutions Ltd, to improve the country’s digital addressing system.
Chairman of the Committee, Dr Mark Assibey Yeboah, said Subah’s National Digital Mapping and Addressing System holds immense potentials for revenue generation for the country.
“It’s been an eye-opener for committee members,” he said after a tour of Subah’s facilities in Accra.
The visit was aimed at studying Subah Infosolution’s National Digital Mapping and Addressing System which has the capability to provide a robust addressing infrastructure to the whole country.
The system, currently at a pilot stage in parts of Accra, uses state-of-the-art technology for a property, household, street and address information.
Minister for Monitoring and Evaluation, Dr Osei Akoto, who was part of the delegation that toured Subah said the visit was important to ensure that Subah, which also works with the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), was adequately equipped to carry out its responsibilities.
Last month, a delegation from Parliament’s Select Committee on Communication also visited Subah to appraise the National Digital Mapping and Property Addressing System.
