MOIS to hold the Korean Digital Government Session for Diplomatic Missions

The Ministry of the Interior and Safety (MOIS, Minister Chin Young) hosted the Korean Digital Government Session for Diplomatic Missions on December 18 at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Seoul.

Marking its fifth anniversary, the session brought together about 100 diplomatic envoys from 61 countries including ambassadors from 26 countries such as UAE, Kyrgyzstan, Brunei, Portugal and Qatar.

The session consisted of three main programs of “Digital Government Innovation Plan,” “Government 24,” and “Digital Government International Cooperation Plan for 2020.”

The presentation on Digital Government Innovation Plan introduced the Korean government’s digital innovation plan in the public sector to cope with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, such as smartphone-based mobile ID card, Digital One Pass that allows access to all government websites with a single ID, and smartphone-based digital bill pay system.

During the Government 24 presentation, MOIS introduced the process of establishing an integrated government portal, named Gov 24, in July 2017 and the current status of services with over 10 million uses.

At the final presentation, MOIS shared its plan for international cooperation on digital government for 2020 including invitational training for senior public officials from abroad, the dispatch of government delegation on digital government to New Southern and New Northern regions as well as Latin America, and the establishment and operation of cooperation centers in Tunisia, Uzbekistan, Serbia and Paraguay.

During the session, Deputy Director Vyacheslav Pak of National Agency for Project Management of Uzbekistan, who visited Korea to sign an MOU on Korea-Uzbekistan e-Government Cooperation Center, delivered a presentation on bilateral cooperation on digital government and future plans.

Minister Chin Young said that “In the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a nation’s strength depends on capacity for innovation and responsible use of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data and cloud computing.” “By sharing Korea’s digital strategies including the Digital Government Innovation Plan and Government 24 to countries around worlds, we will do our best to solidity Korea’s footing as a digital government powerhouse in the age of Fourth Industrial Revolution,” he added.
