eGov ASiA 2006: 

Introduction

Asian countries are witnessing a dramatic change in their economy. So is the scene of e-Governance! Some countries are already topping the international charts of e-Governance, some have just begun their journey, while there are a few others who are yet to step into the e-Governance arena. The scope for these countries to learn from their advanced Asian neighbours is immense and opportunities are unbound. The present need is to create a common ground of equitable learning which facilitates a process of overall development of the region.

Objectives

egov Asia 2006, the Asian e-Government conference, will provide a knowledge-sharing platform, where one could hear and meet the policymakers, practitioners, industry leaders and academicians of Asia-Pacific nations to learn how to carry forward the e-Government vision and consolidate them into actionable program.

Opportunities

egov Asia 2006 will highlight e-Government trends and strategies in Asia bringing forth the challenges and opportunities specific to Asian region. Along with exhibition, it will be a forum to showcase best practices, innovative technologies and ICT solutions. For all stakeholders with an interest in e-Government, it will be an ideal place to meet old friends, make new friends, share notes and foster partnerships.

Asian Telecentre Forum 2006:

Telecentres are increasingly being looked at as an important interface for bringing social and economic development in rural communities worldwide. They are known to the world as information centres, knowledge centres, info-kiosks, community services centres, etc. aiming to bridge the access and knowledge divides between the haves and the have-nots.

The increased interest in telecentres in many developing countries, at a stage when the world is moving towards becoming a knowledge society, provides an opportunity for different stakeholders to exchange knowledge and learn from success stories. In Asia, several models of telecentres exist and have been tried and tested.

They vary in their scope and reach, and there are many success stories to share. Yet, the community is neither cohesive nor built as a network of practitioners. They are also important tools for testing alternatives and solutions in the new and emerging markets zone for software and information and communications technologies (ICTs).
