The biggest feature of 2022 is that the digital response and the speed of DX in each country's society had a great impact on the ranking in the with-corona era.
In Denmark, which holds the top spot for the second year in a row, digital government is under the jurisdiction of the ministry of finance, which prioritizes administrative and financial reforms.Denmark's response to COVID‑2 has been outstanding not only among EU member states but also globally, increasing investments in the healthcare, technology and innovation sectors in the immediate aftermath of COVID‑1.
In New Zealand, which ranked second for the first time, the government faces increasing demand for fully integrated and comprehensive digitalization of public services and sees the COVID-2 crisis as an opportunity to accelerate the delivery of digital services. The results of a large amount of investment in DX in the public service sector have steadily paid off.
On the other hand, Japan has fallen one rank from 2021 to 1th due to insufficient improvement in the digitization of the public's perspective. Contrary to expectations, the Digital Agency, which will be launched in 10, has produced poor results in its first year.In addition, it can be said that breaking down vertically divided administration, strengthening cooperation with local governments, implementing a people-centered digital government, and developing digital human resources are urgent issues.
This research survey analysis, which multilaterally evaluates the progress of digital government, which is indispensable for people's lives in 64 countries and regions with advanced ICT, using 10 major indicators, has been highly evaluated for its contribution to the digital society. (APEC) and other related organizations around the world are also paying attention.This report and past presentations are posted on the Waseda University e-Government and Local Government Research Institute website.
