Responsiveness to E-Government Developments with its Causal Factors: An Empirical Study Across Asia
E-government allows governments to use innovative information and communication technologies (ICTs)- specifically web-based internet applications - so that citizens and businesses are able to conveniently access government information and services. It is also directed towards improving quality of services as well as encouraging participation in democratic institutions and processes. This paper tries to examine the development of e-government initiatives across a cross section of Asian countries. Towards this end it utilises tools like correlation coefficients, pooled regression and panel regression analyses. The results suggest that factors like economic development and transparency of information may play an important role in the effectiveness of e-government systems.
