Along with Singapore and Spain, it will receive an e-Government Special Award for making significant progress in improving its e-service delivery and strengthening citizen engagement through e-participation.

The e-Government Special Awards will recognise the success of each world region by distinguishing the top ranked countries from Africa (Tunisia), the Americas (US), Asia (Republic of Korea), Europe (the UK) and Oceania (Australia).

The awards will also be presented to the governments of Korea, the US and Canada.

The UN e-Government Survey presents rankings on a national and regional basis in two major categories: e-readiness and e-participation.

Bahrain will also be among 23 winners from around the world that will receive a Public Service Award from the UN.

The awards will be presented on Public Service Day on Wednesday to public institutions in recognition of their excellence in providing services.

"Through this year's United Nations Public Service Awards competition, we can see that innovation is thriving throughout the world," said UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon.

This year, for the first time, the UN Public Service Day and Awards Ceremony will be held away from the UN headquarters, Barcelona, Spain, co-organised by the government of Catalonia.

The awards are to be presented at the end of a three-day international meeting on the role of public service in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

It will be followed by a Ministerial Round Table, expected to make recommendations on how to promote innovation in government.

In addition to Bahrain, others to receive a Public Service Award are from Albania, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Japan, India, Italy, the Republic of Korea, Lebanon, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania and Tunisia.
