Zulfiqar Haider, Chen Shuwen, and Muhammad Bux Burdey
Abstract—Several governments are trying to implement and enhance reliable electronic government services all around the world to decrease time spent waiting at government offices. This innovative digital interaction, if adopted and deployed, can empower the next generation. Most of the previous research focused on developed countries, while developing countries are facing many complex obstacles related to socio-economic development, ineffective ICT strategies, and implementation challenges to meet electronic government project goals. We hope this review will help to give a better understanding about these elementary obstacle factors, which are related to infrastructure, political, economic, social, and legal issues, and users’ perspectives. This study also provides suitable strategies to overcome these obstacles, to handle such issues in a better way. The nature of this study is an exploratory research has generated a list of possible strategies. It also supports policy makers, decision-makers, and government officials for the positive implementation and improvement of electronic projects.
