GDS and Singapore to partner on govt services


The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has announced that the UK's Government Digital Service has signed a deal with Singapore’s GovTech Agency to collaborate on digital government services. 

Under the MoU, GDS and GovTech will share knowledge and best practices in building the digital skills of government officials, and adopting open standards for government information, data and software.

A UK statement on the MOU reads: "Signing this MoU is a significant milestone in cementing the UK-Singapore partnership in digital government. Not only is this the first international agreement that GovTech has signed, but more importantly, the MoU is well placed to herald new opportunities for the two countries to deepen collaboration on their digital academies, digital identity projects, and the development of new and better digital government services for citizens. A great start and an exciting new milestone under the SG-UK Partnership for the Future".
