Digital Government Cooperation Center

‘D-Government Cooperation Center (DGCC)’ has been launched globally as a cooperative project between Korea and partner countries. The Ministry of Interior and Safety (MOIS) and the National Information Society Agency (NIA) of the Republic of Korea have worked together to provide intensive support to international cooperation in the D-Government sector.

After signing MoU, the Korean government and the partner country each contribute budgets in operating DGCC accordingly. By building the D-Government Cooperation Center in a country that wishes to adopt the Korean model of the D-Government system, Korea and the partner country jointly run the center for 3 years. The D-Government Cooperation Center serves as a platform to support joint research projects, consultation on informatization policies, and exchange of IT technology and manpower.
