June 24, 1967 was the day when the Republic of Korea started computerizing administrative affairs to handle demographic data.
More than four decades later, Korea has evolved into a world-leading digital government, ranking first three consecutive times in the United Nations e-Government survey, and taking first place two years in a row in the OECD’s OUR data index.
Against this backdrop, the government revised the Electronic Government Act in September 2017 as an effort to create an intelligent e-Government and bolster its status as a global leader in the field. It also designated e-Government Day to share e-Government achievements with the citizens, creating a shared vision and continuously improving the digital government.
In celebration of the e-Government’s 4th anniversary, citizens, government officials, experts from the private sector, academia will join together to freely discuss future directions for the Korean intelligent Government, and get a glance at the forthcoming government plan.
The government is taking another leap into the better future.
