>Third Global Forum
>Fostering democracy and development through e-government
>15-17 March 2001- Naples
>The Italian Government will host in Naples (Teatro San Carlo, Palazzo
>Reale and Castel dell'Ovo), from 15 to 17 March 2001, the Third
>Global Forum on "governance", which will be dedicated to the theme of
>electronic government as an instrument of democracy and development.
>The first Global Forum was held in Washington in January 1999, and
>was attended by President Clinton, while the second was held in
>Brasilia last May.
>The organisation of the Third Global Forum sees contributions from
>international organisations such as the United Nations, the OECD, the
>European Union, the World Bank and other important foundations and
>The appointment in Naples is of particular interest:
>- due to the opportunity offered above all to developing countries to
>debate and understand the benefits accruing from ICT applied to
>administration and their potential in terms of economic and social
>growth, transparency and democracy.
>All the themes debated at the convention will be analysed with
>particular attention to two horizontal problems: women and equal
>opportunity in the information society, and the reduction of the
>"digital divide". In this sense the Third Global Forum in Naples
>becomes one of those occasions for reflection and action promoted by
>the Okinawa Charter on the Information Society and by the Secretary
>General of the United Nations.
>Finally, some participants (especially those from developing
>countries) will be offered, before the Forum, from 12 to 15 March,
>high level training seminars, organised in collaboration with the
>United Nations, the World Bank, the Italian Ministry of Foreign
>Affairs and Italian and other training institutions.
>Attendance at the Third Global Forum is by invitation from the
>Italian Government only.
