Governments worldwide use ICT in an attempt to work more effectively, in particular with business. Regulations and processes, however, tend to vary among (and often even within) countries, meaning that the gap between the ways different countries approach electronic trade procedures and e-government is widening. This comes with its own set of challenges and results in many different - and often conflicting - approaches to the ways businesses and governments interact electronically.
This conference provided an opportunity for business and public administration practitioners to engage in a constructive dialogue on the regulatory and practical issues that arise when paper-based trade and administrative processes are replaced with ICT-facilitated interactions.
Country-specific examples [e.g. from the Asia-Pacific (APEC region), BRICS (Brazil, Russian, India, China and South Africa), European Union and the Americas] of regulation and mandatory administrative interfaces for tax, customs, public procurement and other areas.
