On April 14 (KST), the Republic of Korea’s Ministry of the Interior and Safety and the Council of Ministers of Peru signed an MOU for the establishment of the National Government Innovation and Digital Transformation Cooperation Center Peru-Korea (hereinafter “Korea-Peru Digital Cooperation Center”).
After two countries’ successful joint operation of the Korea-Peru e-Government cooperation center from 2017 to 2019, two sides decided to establish another cooperation center to strengthen the Korea-Peru relationship.
The Korea-Peru Digital Cooperation Center will operate in Lima, Peru from 2021 to 2023. The Korean government will dispatch a digital government expert to work with the Peruvian government to further advance Peru’s digital government.
Based on the MOU, Korea and Peru will conduct various cooperation projects over three years. Several initiatives are under discussion for implementation in 2021, including developing a new digital government implementation strategy for the Peruvian government, conducting a research on how to secure interoperability of digital government services, and strengthening digital capabilities of Peru’s civil servants.
