Also announced at Mobile World Congress, the Government Excellence Awards focus on governments that have fostered the true spirit of digitalisation in their national agenda. The 2018 winners are:

Government Leadership Award
Government of the Republic of Estonia

The GSMA’s Government Leadership Award recognises world-class leadership in the establishment of sound telecommunications regulatory policies, based on clear principles that encourage private investment, such as transparency, free and fair competition, and regulatory independence. Estonia’s application was highly regarded by the entire judging panel. Of note were the policy approaches adopted by the Estonian government to support the deployment of mobile services, particularly in relation the provision of fibre backhaul in rural areas and the strong promotion and rapid development of 5G services.

Estonia has made excellent progress towards the digital transformation of its government services, based upon a robust digital identity for all citizens. Further, the panel was impressed by the focus on encouraging the take-up of mobile services in both the private and public sectors, particularly the fact that 95 per cent of government e-services are available through a mobile ID.

Chairman’s Award for Government Innovation in an Emerging Market
Telecommunications Regulatory Commission – Jordan

This award recognises the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission’s (TRC) willingness to engage positively with the mobile industry and its support for ideas to encourage continued and sustained investment in mobile broadband networks. The TRC takes a consultative approach with industry, tests proposals with independent objective studies and is supportive of initiatives that enhance the viability of the mobile sector.

With the support of the TRC, Jordan has made significant progress in the development of digital government services, such as e-health, e-education, tax and municipal services, among others. The important role of the TRC in regional capacity building initiatives is also highly commendable. Finally, the TRC’s focus on monitoring quality of service and customer experience is a concrete demonstration of adopting best international practice.
