Hong Kong is ranked second in Asia Pacific for its e-government programmes – and their award-winning agencies will be sharing their experience when they attend the 5th annual FutureGov Forum Hong Kong (12 November, Mira Hotel, Tsim Tsa Shui).
Over the past seven years Hong Kong is second only to Singapore in the number of projects recognised at the FutureGov Awards.
In this year’s FutureGov Awards City University of Hong Kong and the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority were recognised for their initiatives in Green Government and Government Cloud respectively. Previously the Hong Kong Police Force has been a three times winner at Asia Pacific’s longest running government technology awards programme.
These are certainly exciting times to be working in the field of public sector ICT, with the release of the 2014 Digital 21 Strategy outlining the Hong Kong Government’s ambitions for more collaborative working between Bureaus, and a more seamless citizen service experience.
Daniel Lai, Government Chief Information Officer, Office of the GCIO, [pictured] will lead the discussions at FutureGov Forum Hong Kong as he shares both the vision for the future of government ICT in Hong Kong, as well as the practical impact on government bureaus.
The Efficiency Unit will also be represented at FutureGov Forum Hong Kong, focusing on the work being done to properly assess and manage public sector productivity in HKSAR.
International speakers will showcase their experience of delivering next generation government services from Estonia and Spain. Switzerland’s Privacy Commissioner will be on hand to share how that country has put in place safeguards for citizen data. And the Australian Public Service will be well represented to share how their government is reappraising the role of technology within government.
What does it take to be in the top five per cent of public sector technology deployments? Blood, sweat and tears is the answer, according to the detailed submissions from more than 650 nominees to this year’s awards. But representatives from the winning Hong Kong public sector organisations, and their international peers will be sharing their short cuts to success at the conference.
