ABOUT Article

This paper examines challenges in e-government adoption and provides practical policy implications that can be a venue for achieving a functional e-government in Cambodia, under the condition that businesses operate as usual. Utilizing the Reality Gap theoretical model developed by Heeks (2003), the findings suggest that the path approaching e-government adoption can be challenging which requires a rigorous plan, including enhancing Information Technology and Communication (ICT) infrastructure, adopting effective regulation and policy, expanding and reducing the cost of electricity, reducing the digital divide, resolving and integrating legacy workforce in the government to establish a favorable e-environment and generating sustainable financial support.
