(KPL) The Singaporean Ministry of Foreign Affairs funded a 5-day training course on Developing Digital Government Strategies for 25 Lao government officials from 22 to 26 April 2019.
The course, which was held at the Laos-Singapore Cooperation Centre in Vientiane, was conducted by the National University of Singapore.
The course discussed the concept and evolution and framework and strategies of digital government and on how participants can apply them to develop an action plan for their own digital government.
The course was conducted pursuant to the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI).
Under the IAI, Singapore conducts 20 to 30 courses a year at the Lao-Singapore training Centre, focusing on areas of public governance, finance, urban management, hospitality and tourism, civil aviation, as well as IT skills and the English Language.
About 600 Lao officials are trained each year and over 13,000 Lao government officials have benefited from the ministry’s various training programmes under the Singapore Cooperation Programme since 1993.
