Panama has reached an e-government collaboration agreement with South Korea, media outlet TyN Magazine reported.
Panama's authority for government innovation, AIG, will work with South Korea's National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) to study, design and implement an e-government master plan for the Central American country.
The goal is that by 2014, Panama will be among the top Latin American countries in the global e-government ranking.
According to Temístocles Arjona, national coordinator for the e-government master plan for Panama and AIG's international relations director, implementing such a plan will have a major impact on the modernization of the state and the country.
He said countries that have implemented successful e-government plans now enjoy a high degree of development and competitiveness.
