The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Communication, Works, Transport and Technology is visiting Stockholm, Sweden, on a mission to improve e-Government.
The purpose of the mission, says a press release from the National Assembly, is to benchmark on e-Government strategies of the Swedish Model, as well as to share information on the current status of e-Government in Botswana.
This mission will also cover various briefings on how e-Governance could benefit society, Partner Driven Cooperation, freedom of speech and Information Communication Technology (ICT), village-owned broadband, taxpayer relations from a strategic point of view and experiences of e- filing and e-Health and how innovation could strengthen health service delivery in low-resource settings.
“While in Sweden, the Committee will also visit Ericsson Studios; network with other Swedish ICT companies; meet with the Director General for Trade in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; as well as pay a courtesy visit to the Speaker of the Swedish Parliament,” added the release.
The delegation comprises Odirile Motlhale, Chairman of the Committee, Phillip Khwai, Rayner Makosha, the Clerk of the National Assembly and one member of the secretariat.
