"Information and communication technologies (ICT) can help the public sector to deal with the challenges of economic, social and environmental renewal and contribute to boosting economic growth and innovation. However, the full benefits from ICT solutions are only obtained when the administrations are properly organized and when they have adequately skilled staff. This is what eGovernment is about and I am pleased to note that this is one of the central missions of the Journal of E-Government."
Hon. Erkki Liikanen
