On 27 April, the UN DESA’s Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) had a presentation on Singapore’s e-government.

A presentation on Singapore’s e-government and e-governance strategy for the development highlighted Singapore’s new coordination structure among government agencies in order to promote the whole of government approach and the citizen centric service delivery. This presentation was made by the Government Chief Information Office (GCIO) of Singapore and his delegation of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA).  The participants learned how government engages other stakeholders including private sector, civil society and citizens at large for better coordination for the seamless services to meet citizen’s needs most effectively.
