Background

Digital transformation in the domain of the public sector tends to extensively affect all of the sectors in a society, and moreover, have the potential to transform citizens’ conceptions of civil and political interactions with their governments. Digital government is not only a main component of digital transformation, but also a main factor that will affect its progress. It extensively affects all of the sectors in a society, and moreover, have the potential to transform citizens’ conceptions of civil and political interactions with their governments. Providing effective access to large collections of public information for citizens and officials and making them usable by the large community of users can generate significant economic and social benefits, despite the associated technical and regulatory challenges. In this regard, digital government has wider connotation than E-government.

As digital tools and new services have emerged in endless stream, leading to profound changes in the way of work, living, leisure and entertainment, digital government is not only about the government's use of information and communication technologies (ICT) solution in providing online services and e-government to the public, but also about facilitating the interaction among different stakeholders and increasing the inclusivity of decision-making. It emphasises on open and user-driven approaches and operational transformations, which is more than E-government's effort on increasing
transparency and setting ICT-enabled procedures in public services.

Digital government will be a new frontier of regional cooperation in ASEAN and East Asia. The consequent improvement in public services could increase the efficiency of regional supply chains and make the region more competitive in the global market.
