ASPI Roundtable: ICTs and emerging technologies in the Pacific

Speakers Bart Hogeveen, Hannes Astok and Danielle Cave

ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre warmly invites you to an online roundtable discussion on e-governance and the use of ICTs in the Pacific.

Join ASPI's Bart Hogeveen and Hannes Astok, e-Governance Academy's Deputy Director for Strategy and Development, as they present their observations from the baseline assessment on e-government capabilities in six Pacific countries, as published by ASPI and EGA in February 2020.

Moderated by Danielle Cave, Deputy Director of ASPI's International Cyber Centre, this roundtable will explore options for specific and meaningful follow-up options and answer any questions you have on the topic in a Q&A.

e-Government systems are generally understood to refer to public sector activities that include the use of ICTs to improve internal government processes, connect government with citizens, businesses and industry.

In the context of the Pacific, the introduction and use of internet connectivity, mobile devices, online applications and digital services is connected to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals of poverty reduction: lower transactions costs, greater access to information and less borders would expedite socio-economic development.
