Cambodia To Make E-Government Available for Its People

In its effort to reform the country's public sector, Cambodia has made E-government available for its people in order to better deliver public services to the people and become their trustworthy partners, said Minister of Civil Service H.E. Pich Bunthin in a recent national workshop at the Royal School of Administration (RSA).

The workshop was co-organised by the ministry and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to discuss how to advance governance innovations in the current digital era to further improve public services. This meant the workshop intended to collect ideas and experiences from experts and leaders within the region and beyond about the challenges and opportunities of implementing public service sector at national, regional and international level.

E-government�which is the use of electronic communication devices such as computers and the internet to enable the digital interactions between an individual citizen and their government, between the government and its various line agencies, and between the government and its citizens�would make the delivery of public services more effective and efficient, said the minister, adding that this factor is one of the enabling factors indispensable for Cambodia to achieve its Sustainable Development Goals (CSDGs) of becoming an upper middle-income economy by 2030 and a high-income country by 2050.

Noticeably, public service delivery domain is very important everywhere in the world, said H.E. Pich Bunthin, pointing out that Ministers of Civil Service in the world had always been invited to Dubai of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) every February to attend World Government Summit to address the challenges and opportunities of this public service provision sector.
