Government at a Glance Southeast Asia 2019 is the first edition in the Government at a Glance series for the region. It provides the latest available data on public administrations in the 10 ASEAN member countries: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam. This publication includes indicators on public finance and economics, public employment, budget practices and procedures, strategic human resources management, digital government, open government and citizen satisfaction with public services. Where possible, these data were compared against the OECD average and that of the neighbouring OECD member countries, such as Australia, Korea, Japan and New Zealand.

Each indicator in the publication is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of graphs and/or charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.



Measuring the financial benefits of ICT investments

Digital technologies are rapidly being ingrained in all government activities and processes. As a result, the size and prevalence of investments in public information and communication technology (ICT) are becoming more important in countries’ national budgets. Strategic planning is necessary to optimise public ICT expenditures in order to secure efficiency, coherence and sustainability, avoiding gaps and/or duplications that typically result from siloed approaches. The public sector’s capacity to measure the economic benefits of ICT expenditures for central government, for citizens and for businesses can therefore contribute to better informed policies and practices for ICT investments.
