    Abstract As an immersive virtual experience, the Metaverse is enabled by multiple technologies and concepts, such as extended reality, blockchain, artificial intelligence, the internet of things, and digital twins, among others. This reflection paper discusses the concept of the Metaverse and the role of the government and the public sector in maximising the potential of conceptual metaverse technology for public service delivery. First, the aim is to reflect on the regulatory role, which must address the existing and emerging issues of the suit of technologies enabling the Metaverse. Second, the role of the public sector and the government as potential users of the Metaverse is addressed. Lastly, various policy and program implications highlight the Metaverse’s opportunity for innovation and transformation of public sector decision-making, service production, and delivery while stressing the importance of carefully considering whether Metaverse is the most appropriate technology to address specific public sector needs.
