The Minister of Administration and Security Maeng Hyung-kyu received the award on Korea’s behalf at the 2010 UN Public Service Awards Ceremony that took place in Barcelona, Spain on Wednesday (Jun. 23).

About 400 government representatives have gathered at the awards ceremony organized by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM).

At the ceremony Minister Maeng pledged contribution to the world’s e-governance system on behalf of the Korean government. He then talked with Sha Zukang the UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs and Spain’s Secretary of State for Public Service Consuelo Rumi on advancing e-governance.

The public administration ministry underlined that this is a big leap for Korea, a country that once used to adopt modern administrative systems from abroad, and that this latest achievement has effectively laid a basis for Korea’s export of its successful e-governance system.

Meanwhile, the ministry also revealed a marketing plan that is already underway joining Korea Information Technology Service Industry Association and other public and private officials to make the Korean e-governance system another hot export commodity like semiconductors, LCDs and cell phones.
