Governments are under pressure to improve service delivery to citizens, as digitalization is radically transforming how people interact with the world, KPMG said in its latest publication, “Voices on 2030: Digitalizing government”.
The publication is based on interviews with the world’s leading public and private sector thinkers’ predictions of the world in 2030, focusing on challenges, successes and risks likely to be faced leading up to 2030. The Governor of the Digital Government Authority, Saudi Arabia and the CEO of NEOM have shared their perspectives with KPMG.
According to Nadhmi Al-Nasr, CEO of NEOM, cognitive cities, such as NEOM, represent a new way of life in 2030, combining cognitive technologies with ports and enterprise zones, research and innovation centers, sport and entertainment venues, and tourist destinations.
The KPMG publication states that digitalization is radically transforming people’s interactions, as new concepts and technologies are becoming enablers to deliver on these expectations.
The private sector players illustrate what will be possible in 2030 and force governments to accelerate their response. They are showing that digitalization can lead to enhanced growth, prosperity, social cohesion and sustainability through the transformative power of emerging technologies and platforms, such as Web 3.0 and Metaverse.
