GovTech: Toward a modern state of affairs

Hailing a ride-share, ordering food, booking a homestay, or streaming a movie has never been more easy and accessible than they are today. However, can the same be said of citizens’ interaction with government services? Could GovTech be the answer?

This Insight discusses what GovTech really is, the factors driving its demand, and the challenges to its growth.
