About ACGOV1

Arab countries are undergoing difficult times and rough turbulence where many countries suffer from social, economic, and political unrest. Regardless of the reasons that led to this situation, it is quite obvious that Arab countries need to move into a better future featuring stability, more abundance, prosperity, and opportunity.
   
  Information Technology provides countries with the means to start a process of genuine transformation. The e-government programs represent the suitable framework adopted by many countries to enhance government services provided to people. Regardless of its technological nature, information technology became the real business driver and enabler for governments’ projects in education, health, commerce, industry, finance, security, etc.
   
  The Arab Connected Government Forum – Road to Sustainable Development aims at transforming the e-government technology projects into real business enablers that drive government services towards growth, modernization, productivity, efficiency, justice, and transparency.
   
  In order to achieve these objectives, leaders, legislators, and e-government program managers should lay out the programs and legislations that make this possible. The Arab Connected Government Forum – Road to Sustainable Development discusses the means, possibilities, and topics that help direct e-government programs towards such a path. The Forum’s future versions should continue the effort and discussions while building a suitable mechanism to monitor progress.
   
   
   

Objectives

ACGOV1 aims at helping the e-government programs to become one of the main vehicles through which Arab societies are transformed into a new era of sustainable Modernization. This era should promise people, especially, the youth, with better job opportunities and greater integration within modern societies. Specifically, ACGOV1 aims at:

  • Highlighting the legislative and legal requirements to move into future information-based societies and spread social awareness about this change.
  • Raising awareness of the systems, processes, and technologies that help protect information assets and privacy on the personal, enterprise, and national levels.
  • Becoming acquainted with the new trends in communications, especially software-based networks and mobile systems that help reach all areas.
