H.E. also mentioned, “This workshop comes within an integrated strategy aimed at improving the quality of content and e-services offered by government bodies in the UAE. This is a logical result of the many initiatives that launched within the field.”
The agenda of the workshop will continue on September 3rd by presenting a set of points and issues. The most important point to be discussed will be the possibility of establishing joint action and role distribution between various government bodies and institutions, in order to raise competitiveness of the UAE on the UN e-Government index.
