Future Ready Government – Navigating the Changes


Governments are facing an accelerating pace of change on all fronts, be it economic, social, technological, environmental or others. With the emergent changes, it can no longer be "business as usual". Governments have to be flexible, adaptable, collaborative and creative in order to successfully navigate the waves of change and be ready for the future. Delegates of the ICA 47th conference explored how governments around the world are harnessing advances in Information and Communications Technology to embrace the opportunities and challenges presented by the swiftly evolving landscape to be ready for the future.
