What is DGCC(Digital Government Cooperation Center)?
Digital Government Cooperation Center (DGCC) is a platform established to promote the development of the digital government of partner countries by sharing Korea's experiences in developing the digital government, and an organization established in a place designated by a partner country with the aim of economic development by establishing an international cooperation network and supporting digital economic cooperation. Centers are built and operated for 3 years with shared financial resources (cash or in-kind worth USD 1 million each) between Korea and partner countries. During the operation period, experts in the field of digital government in Korea are dispatched to partner countries to discover and carry out joint cooperation tasks in the area, and provide digital government technology and policy advice to the central and local governments, and public institutions in the partner countries. Manpower exchange is also promoted through invitational or local training courses, forums, and seminars. As of April 2022, we have centers in Peru, Paraguay, Cambodia, Indonesia, Tunisia, Serbia, and Uzbekistan.
What are the procedures for building a DGCC?
We use the Ministry of the Interior and Safety(MOIS)'s N-2 year's demand surveys to select candidate countries, prepare detailed Project Concept Papers, and identify the business areas desired by the ministries of the selected countries. Discussions regarding budget, human resources, and location are made through MOU documents, project plans, and operating regulations with ministries of the selected countries in N-1 year. Starting from the year N, Korea's digital government experts are dispatched for a three-year term to work on joint projects (consulting/system construction).
