This report benchmarks digital government strategies in MENA countries against OECD
standards and best practices. Using the OECD Recommendation of the Council on Digital
Government Strategies as analytical framework, the report provides an in-depth look
at the efforts made by Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and the United Arab
Emirates to use digital technologies strategically to support broader policy objectives.
New technologies can help foster economic value creation, make institutions more inclusive,
improve competitiveness and promote effective decision-making in the public sector.
This report also assesses the use of ICTs to strengthen trust in government through
greater openness and engagement, and suggests how MENA countries can better co-ordinate
and steer the digital transformation of the public sector.
