World Bank Conference on m-Government

Posted by CorinneRamey on Nov 21, 2007

The World Bank e-Development Thematic Group is hosting a global dialogue on the use of mobiles in government. The seminar, titled "m-Government: The Next Frontier in Public Service Delivery," will take place in Washington, D.C. and is part of the eGovWorld conference, from November 29-30 in New Delhi, India.

According to the press release,

Mobile services are quickly emerging as the new frontier in transforming government and making it even more accessible and citizen-centric by extending the benefits of remote delivery of government services and information to those who are unable or unwilling to access public services through the Internet or who simply prefer to use mobile devices. In theory, many government services can be now made available on a 24x7x365 basis at any place in the world covered by mobile networks, which today means almost everywhere.

Speakers will include Ibrahim Kushchu, Associate Professor and Director of the Mobile Government Consortium International and author of "m-Government: An Emerging Direction in e-Government" and Hannes Astok, Member of Parliament and former Deputy Mayor of the City of Tartu, Estonia.

A live webcast of the event will be available on the eDevelopment website. To join the mailing list, or attend the seminar, email
