Singapore and South Korea Collaborate on E-Government

SINGAPORE, June 16, 2010 - (ACN Newswire) - To promote cooperation in the field of infocomm technology between the Republic of Singapore and the Republic of Korea, the two countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) today on e-Government cooperation. The MOU seeks to increase opportunities for e-Government collaboration between Singapore and South Korea.

Elevating bilateral relations between the two countries up a step, the MOU was sealed today by Mr Kim Seang-Tae, President, National Information Society Agency, Republic of Korea and RADM(NS) Ronnie Tay, Chief Executive Officer, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore.

The MOU sets the framework for greater cooperation efforts between the two countries to promote further advancements in the delivery of e-Government services in each respective country. As part of the agreement, both parties will:

i. Collaborate on projects in the area of e-Government
ii. Support major workshops and conferences hosted by either country by facilitating the participation of delegates, panel experts and speakers, and;
iii. Exchange information, knowledge and experience in relation to e-Government.
