Description & Coverage
Description:

Government and industry e-commerce agendas have become more closely linked in recent times and more people are now less tolerant of poor, impersonal service in the public sector as they become aware of the power of the web and experience good service in the private sector.

This reference publication will be valuable to those interested in the study and development of e-government in the local, national, and worldly context.
