    Abstract

    This paper seeks to investigate e-government prospects and challenges in Fiji Islands. The research used both secondary and primary data sources to examine e-government prospects and challenges in Fiji. While secondary review of data were used, some primary data have supplemented them to reach the findings of the study. The key finding of the study is that e-government is employed with the objective to provide timely and hassle free services to citizens; however, successful diffusion throughout Fiji is still a challenging issue. This is troubled by problems related to technology, laws, regulations and human resources among other constraints. The study concludes that despite the diffusion challenges, e-government in the country still holds better prospects provided new elected government pays attention to properly investing in infrastructural development, capacity building and other important areas.
