The Philippines OpenGov Leadership Forum is a large-scale platform that brings international government officials to share their journey with their Philippines counterparts through an interactive discussion format.

For the past few years, OpenGov has consistently gathered over 200 top decision makers and civil servants to meet their international counterparts to discuss key issues relating to digital transformation.

This year, there will be 4 Digital Government Tracks. All trakcs will cover topis on Augmented Intelligence, Convergence, Data and Cyber Resilience. The uniqueness of OpenGov Leadership Forum lies in the OpenGov Gamification Table (OGT) format.

Each OGT is hosted by a senior government official and an industry leader. The OGT provides an opportunity for open discussion with our international and domestic speakers. It also serves as a platform for an intimate sharing and learning session, that is parallel to none.
