48th ICA Conference Programme
Smart Investments for Future Digital Government

Governments have made significant advances in harnessing ICT to enhance their services, boost economic growth, and improve the lives and prosperity of their citizens. However, the current global economic and political climate have been driving higher levels of government debt and forcing policy makers to be more efficient and to reduce spending on ICT. At the same time, demographic shifts are placing greater burdens on traditional services. Therefore, governments are facing a very real challenge – how to maintain and improve standards for their citizens and businesses, given their limited or diminishing budgets. In this conference, participants will discuss how governments around the world are making smart investments in digital media and technology to transform the way they deliver services, gain efficiencies, empower citizens and boost economic growth, poised to become successful future digital governments.
