Korean firms can help with e-government

KUALA LUMPUR: South Korean companies are willing to help Malaysia turn its e-government initiative into reality.

Bob Chua, chief executive director of iPark Singapore, said Malaysia could learn a lot about implementing e-government from South Korea.

South Korea has effectively implemented e-government and is the world leader in e-government services, he said. “It has been ranked No 1 by the United Nations.”

iPark is an agency that promotes the South Korean information technology industry. It has a regional office in Singapore to facilitate its activities in South-East Asia.

Chua was in Kuala Lumpur to attend the annual iPark forum here recently. It is the third such forum in this country to help forge partnerships between local IT companies and their Seoul counterparts, with the aim of developing the Multimedia Super Corridor's seven flagship applications. E-government is one of the applications.

According to Chua, Malaysia has the technology to implement e-government but its people need to be more tech-savvy.

He said the main factor for South Korea's successful implementation of e-government is its high number of educated and tech-savvy people.

“South Korea has an educated workforce that is very inclined to technology,” he said. – JO TIMBUONG
