Learning from the 2014 Global e-Gov Forum International Scientific Practical Conference


I am speaking, chairing the opening session of the 2014 Global e-Government Forum International Scientific Practical Conference next week involving 60 countries and in collaboration with the United Nations. I am sharing here since the topic areas should be on your agenda and this provides a quick check list. I will write articles about my lessons learned post-conference. There is more below.


The third Global e-Government Forum (GeGF), a joint event of the United Nations and host country will be held in Astana October 7-8, 2014. The first two forums were held in South Korea. Delegates from over 60 countries will be participating. The UN Deputy Secretary General, ITU Deputy Secretary General, Prime Minister, Ministers will be providing their deep insights.

The Ministry of Investment and Development in close collaboration with the United Nations Department of Economics and Social Affairs will host the 3rd Global e-Government Forum in Astana, where high-level representatives from governments, international organizations, academia and business in 60 nations will gather to discuss the e-Government role and trends in the new era under the theme of ‘Smart Governance in Sustainable Development: New Possibilities of Partnership in Networked Society’.
