Delegations from Singapore and Kuwait get a first hand account of Dubai’s e-government model in a knowledge share between the countries. Rear Admiral (NS) Sim Gim Guan, the senior director for information and corporate management at the Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA) led an 11-member Singaporean delegation to study various elements of Dubai’s e-government initiative to gain valuable insight into the workings of the project. This was followed by a Kuwaiti delegation representing the Ministry of Trade and Industry. “Our visit to Dubai e-government, which was part of the structured training programme for our information officers, proved to be extremely informative as we got a first hand account of the working of Dubai e-government. "Dubai e-government has led the way in e-government implementation in the region and we were keen on learning from their experiences. "The exposure gained by this visit could prove invaluable to the team and we look forward to similar opportunities in future,” Sim Gim Guan said. Dubai e-government was launched in 2001 with the express aim of centralising its services through a single portal (www.dubai.ae) and provides services including e-pay, e-job, e-learn, e-host and AskDubai. “We were pleased to welcome the Kuwaiti and Singaporean delegations to Dubai e-government and to provide them with a detailed overview of the range of services we offer. "Dubai e-government, being the pioneer in the region to adopt electronic governance, is seen as an exemplary model and we are glad to share our knowledge and experience with other countries,” said Salem Al Shair, e-services director, Dubai e-government. “Dubai e-government serves as a link between the various government departments in the emirate and integrates these individually automated departments under the single umbrella of the e-government initiative,” he concluded.
