THE Government, through the information and communication technology (ICT) ministry, has launched a plan to implement e-government to improve efficiency and delivery of public services.
This is in collaboration with South Korea, which will offer technical assistance to develop a comprehensive ICT master plan for Uganda, covering and integrating the economy and a feasibility study on ICT priority areas.
E-government refers to the use of the Internet to deliver government information and services to citizens.
The team from South Korea’s National IT Promotion Agency (NIPA), the lead agency on ICT master planning, is in the country to prepare for the project.
The experts held a meeting on Tuesday with the National Information Technology Authority- Uganda (NITA-U) officials in Kampala, where they shared knowledge on how to implement e-governance.
