About the product

E-government is now a central theme in information society at all levels: local, national, regional and even global. It can be defined as a transformation of public-sector internal and external relationships through use of information and communication technology (ICT) to promote greater accountability of the Government, increase efficiency and cost-effectiveness and create a greater constituency participation. Countries of the Asian and Pacific region engage in e-government, as they provide cost-effective government-related information via Web sites and most have already developed a national e-government strategy. This Regional Workshop on Implementing E-government was organized to prepare the countries in the Asian and Pacific region to take up this challenge and/or assist them to improve their e-government programmes.
