Abstract: E-government can be represented as an evolutionary process that usually takes a long time to build. Korean government started this evolutionary process in the 1980’s and Korea ranked the first in the UN E-government survey in 2010, 2012 and 2014. I will start my talk by introducing Korea’s e-government development as an evolutionary process. Then I will discuss factors that contributed to this success, such as strong political will and leadership, a partnership with the private sector, especially ICT industry, effective allocation of resources, and supporting legal system. Finally, I will describe some challenges that the Korean government had faced in this processes and how the Korean government dealt with them, which might provide guidance to countries in similar circumstances.
