The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), through its Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG), in collaboration with China National Academy of Governance (CNAG) and Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences (SASS), is organizing a capacity building webinar on strengthening digital transformation through investing in digital infrastructure, fostering a digital workforce, improving digital government services, building a dynamic digital economy, and developing national digital data policies and strategies for ensuring data quality, access, security, privacy and usage. The webinar, drawing from experience in several countries in Asia, is supported by the 2030 Agenda Sub-Fund of the UN Peace and Security Fund.

The objective of the 2-hour webinar is to discuss challenges and share lessons learned at the country and municipal levels on how to accelerate digital transformation by developing a funding partnership for investing in digital infrastructure, by improving digital government services and digital economy, and by strengthening data governance. Several Asian countries with recent progress in these areas will be invited to highlight national and local experiences, share lessons learned and identify ways forward.
