The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea had transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before.

Abstract

e-Government is the application of IT tools and techniques (such as wide area networks, the Internet, and mobile computing) to provide governmental services for citizens, businesses and other governmental agencies efficiently (Seifert, 2003). e-Government can make it easier for citizens to access public information and services and can promote governmental efficiency, effectiveness, transparency and accountability, administrative convenience, accessibility of government and potential for participation.
In the first chapter, the current status of the Korean e-Government is briefly introduced. Korea is one of the top-ranked countries in terms of major international e-Government and IT indexes. Korea has steadily been at the first rank in the Digital Opportunity Index (DOI) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) since 2004, and has been within the top five countries in the UN e-Government Readiness Index1 since 2005. Moreover, Korea has been among the top three countries several times in each IT competitiveness index of the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in U.K. and the National Information society Agency (NIA) in Korea since 2005.
