This year the conference is focused on knowledge transfer as the main enabler of e-governance development and shares the best practice around the world.
e-Governance Academy, the organizer of the conference has 15 years of work experience in 60 countries around the world and has learned that the only way to achieve meaningful and sustainable long-term results in developing e-governance is through developing the practical skills and experiences of local experts. Therefore, the central topic of this year’s conference is very hot and should be discussed in a very practical, hands-on way.
The geographic range of our view on e-governance development is particularly extensive this year, featuring many speakers, panellists and case studies from African, Caribbean and Pacific countries.
Our line-up of speakers is topped by the President of Estonia, Ms Kersti Kaljulaid and Secretary General of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group or countries, Dr Patrick Ignatius Gomes. We also expect several ministerial level speakers from the African Caribbean Pacific (ACP) countries.
The first day of the conference will explore how to build domestic and regional e- governance knowledge, what are the lessons learned so far and what are the ongoing and future projects for developing local and regional centres of excellence.
On the second day, mobile e-solutions from the ACP region and beyond will be demonstrated and the “Once Only” principle of interaction between government and citizens and businesses will be discussed.
