Over the next five years the Korean government plans to establish cooperation centers in Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, Central America and South America that will focus on online and electronic government services.

The Korean government hopes to share with the world its successful experiences in developing and managing electronic online government services, all while continuing to set global e-government standards as it is one of the world's leading countries in terms of electronic and online government services. 

All of this is part of the Electronic Government 2020 Master Plan that was announced on April 1 by the Ministry of the Interior. To respond to the rapidly changing e-government environment, including the development of the new technology, a Korean law prescribes that the government should establish a master plan regarding electronic government every five years. 

Besides international cooperation, the 2020 plan also projects the adoption of new IT for "intelligent administration" and to further the industry and to create jobs.

Artificial intelligence (AI) will be used to analyze and prevent crimes, and an "intelligent decision making process" will be developed to deal with disasters, safety management and security. New online government services using technologies like 3-D printing and drone management will be made, to help with the fostering of new industries and the creation of more jobs. 

Minister of the Interior Hong Yun-sik said that the e-government master plan will "continue to seek for innovative administration, while at the same time will create new industries and jobs by adopting new AI and IT."
