Digital Government Innovation

  • A digital government innovation can be the door to a better world for our citizens, using digital technologies to their fullest potential ethically and safely. The Korean government has constantly improved its digital government strategy to proactively identify the citizens’ needs and serve them in the best way possible. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Korean government facilitated the digital government innovation plan to be a more resilient, responsive digital government. The Ministry of the Interior and Safety (MOIS) will continue leading the digital transformation domestically and collaborating with its partner countries to build a better digital society for all around the globe

Best Practices of Digital Government Innovation

  • Following examples are some of the current digital government projects that MOIS is implementing. For more information, please contact Digital Government Cooperation Division
    • AI-based Chatbot for citizens: citizens can request and receive necessary information and notifications from the government agencies through a messenger app or AI speakers of their choice without having to visit the government portal (GOV.KR).
    • Mobile ID: starting with the mobile ID for the government officials, MOIS plans to expand the service to other types of ID including a driver’s license. The citizens will be able to enjoy government services with the digital ID instead of the current plastic ID.
    • Digital document and wallet: the Korean citizens and residents can simply store digital certificates issued on GOV.KR portal or app in their own “Digital Wallet” for verification or submission without having to print and submit them in person to a third party organization.
    • My Data: citizens can directly manage their personal information held by government agencies. It would allow the citizens to choose essential data to be shared when applying for and receiving government services, giving them control over their own data.
