Knowledge sharing within a large entity such as government organizations, is critical to successful e-government implementations. Semantic technologies offer promise in this regard, however, many studies in the past have suggested that the semantic technologies for knowledge sharing suffer from potential weaknesses such as dynamicity, scalability, flexibility and offer limited options for specific business applications. In most cases the need for knowledge integration in business interactions in government systems are overlooked or loosely addressed due to rapidly changing situations and complex business networking. Significant challenges remain in developing e-government solution that can address the need for growing knowledge integration and sharing to enhance business interactions. This paper outlines a knowledge sharing framework to solve these issues with respect to citizen's participation in e-government system, by encouraging user driven activities through the use of emerging technology and ontology based design.
