Vol. 1 Issue 7 01-15 December 2007
Welcome to the current issue of “Government@24/7”,your fortnightly source of knowledge and news on e-Government and m-Government! brought to you by m-GovWorld with technical support form OneWorld South Asia..

The third international conference on e-Government  eGovWorld 2007  concluded on November 30 with participation by more than 200 delegates from across the world. The e-development Thematic Group of The World Bank along with us organized a global dialogue on mobile government potential with participation from 10 countries. Key outcomes of the deliberations  were to explore the potential of mobile government more seriously and also to make the stakeholder consultation a compulsory requirement for e-Government project design. In short, the consensus was reached among the delegates to focus on citizen driven e-Government projects for enhancing the success of such projects.  We will be following this approach for the future versions of the newsletter with new features for enabling involvement of the readers in shaping the content and format of this newsletter. Your active participation will help us make this newsletter truly user driven.
