Korea ranked top in both E-Participation Index (EPI) and E-Government Development Index (EGDI) of the United Nations e-Government Survey in 2010. Since then, Korea has been a global e-government leader over the past decade, ranking first in EPI and third in EGDI of the UN e-Government Survey in 2018. This marvelous achievement, however, did not happen overnight. The Korean e-Government has been evolved through tireless efforts to make people’s lives more convenient and facilitate public participation in the policymaking process. Moon Jae-in administration’s key public participation policies, “Gwanghwamoon 1st Street” and “Blue House Online Petition System,” allow citizens to make policy proposals online and then the government translates the proposals into actual policies. In addition, the government has to answer the questions raised by citizens. And, a public service portal called “Government 24” provides tailored public services to citizens 24 hours a day. The Korean government would like to share experience and know-how on building its globally recognized e-Government with the international community and realize digital innovation by incorporating new technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution into digital government. In doing so, Korea will contribute to promoting constant innovation of government and society.
