Countries are being transformed by Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) daily. Singapore, for one, has made important advances in the area of global competitiveness by positioning ICT at the core of national innovation and development strategies. In collaboration with the World Bank’s Global ICT Department and WB Executive Director Office for Southeast Asia, International Enterprise (IE) Singapore would like to cordially invite you to the first Singapore ICT Day@ World Bank featuring Global Dialogue Workshop with country clients participation titled “The Singapore Experience – Ingredients for Successful Nation-wide eTransformation”.

The workshop will share the role of ICT in the public sector transformation agenda and Singapore’s success in eGovernment via close collaboration with the private sector. Experts from Singapore Government CIO Office and leading Singapore ICT companies, namely, IDA International, CrimsonLogic, NCS and novaCITYNETS will also share highlights about Singapore’s 30 years of eGovernment journey, iN2015 vision and key initiatives, eGovernance required to ensure successful eTransformation, and the concept of Public Services Infrastructure for effective deployment.

This Global Dialogue Workshop will provide participants with key insights on how Singapore has transformed from a tranquil port town into a First World city. These insights will include key eGovernment trends, industry drivers/restraints, as well as case studies of eGovernment implementation.
