South Korea and Indonesia launched a joint online government service center in Jakarta on Wednesday in their latest joint effort to set up an e-government system that can raise administrative efficiency, the Ministry of the Interior said. 

Interior Minister Hong Yun-sik took part in the opening ceremony for the government service center set up in the headquarters of Indonesia's Ministry of Administrative Reform and Bureaucratic Reform. His Indonesian counterpart Yuddy Chrisnandi was also present at the event. 

"We will assist South Korean companies that specialize in information and communications technology so that the Jakarta online service center could serve as a foothold to help spread such centers elsewhere in Southeast Asia," Hong said.

The ministry said through the joint project, the two nations aim to produce master plans to build up online government services in Indonesia and develop joint e-government projects. 

The South Korean government is also expected to consult with Indonesian authorities on enacting related laws that can contribute to more competitiveness. The joint e-government center in Jakarta is expected to be in operation till December 2018. (Yonhap)
