In November 2018, the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) hosted the inception seminar for the 2018/2019 Knowledge Sharing Program (KSP) on the enhancement of E-Government systems in the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (GKMA). Consultants from a consortium of Korea Institute for Development Strategy, Seoul Urban Solutions Agency, and VTW also visited KCCA divisions, GKMA districts, and met with other key stakeholders such the Ministry of ICT and Guidance and the National Information Technology Authority to understand the current needs of the city regarding E-Government service delivery. The Executive Director of the KCCA, Jennifer S. Musisi, said, “Korea being one of the leading countries in providing E-Government systems, can offer lessons and effective strategies from which Kampala, the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area, and Uganda at large can benefit.” She said this following the signing of an Aide-Memoire between KCCA and the government of Korea to facilitate knowledge sharing and provide a platform to enhance E-Government system effectiveness and efficiency. Delegates from Uganda will travel to Seoul in early 2019 to benchmark and continue discussions on E-Government improvement opportunities during the interim reporting seminar.
