The Republic of Korea has become one of the main promoters of e-Government systems in the world. Since the 1970s, Korea has implemented a series of reforms on the path to e-government starting with the automatization of selected processes in the early 1970s to building of its own ICT infrastructure and streamlining administrative processes. Today, Korea has over 2,600 e-Government systems at the central government level. Large number of processes and systems have also been streamlined and revisited under the e-Government policy, saving time, costs and enhancing effectiveness and efficiency for both citizens and the administration.
