Korea is a Leader in e-government

The latest global e-government survey by the United Nations shows that Korea ranks number one in the world.  As reported in the Joongang Daily today, this results in a wide range of conveniences for Korean citizens.  Other countries are taking an active interest in Korea's e-government systems. (click on graphic at left to see a larger version) Even Japan, it is reported, wants to learn from the Korean experience and introduce similar measures at home.  There is little question that Korea's efforts toward e-government have provided for greater transparency in many transactions and more efficient service to citizens across a range of services.  However, this leadership could be enhanced if the country could break out of its Microsoft monoculture (see my earlier posts) and allow secure banking and financial transactions.
