Under the High Patronage of H.E. Abdel Fattah Al Sisi President of the Arab Republic of Egypt

Welcome to dot-gov MEA 2018


What does the future look like for digital technology in the public sector? How do countries seek to shift with global trends, seeking citizen contribution to the economy and ultimately citizen satisfaction? In 2015, countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, with digital technology at the core of such vision. The Journey to Government digital transformation examines the ability of digital technology to fundamentally transform the way the public sector operates and delivers services to customers and offers strategies for government leaders to accelerate the rate of their progress.

Transformation in Government Verticals

It is a grave mistake if we speak of government as one block, as the process that may apply to one department, may not apply to the other. A connected government is vital, but different departments or ministries have their variations, or may need additional or different tools for service delivery. Government Transformation Expo 2018 will address some verticals as examples of such variation, such as:

Government Transformation in Healthcare Sector:

Health Ministers and top health officials from the MEA region will discuss issues related, among others, to:

  • Creating Connected Health Cities
  • Sharing health data across research centers for public good
  • Unifying health providers in any given country under one regulator
