"Korea’s various digital responses to the pandemic focusing on public health measures, remote education, remote work, and digital government system in contact tracing and open data management"

South Korea is one of the countries that successfully leveraged digital technologies in its efforts of containing the first wave of COVID-19. In this learning session, speakers introduce Korea’s various digital responses to the pandemic - focusing on public health measures, remote education, remote work, and digital government system in contact tracing and open data management. It additionally introduces Korea’s post-pandemic policy measure and its digital pillar called the Digital New Deal. The Digital New Deal aims to accelerate the transition towards a digital economy through innovation and competitiveness in the industry, focusing on stronger integration of Data, Network, and AI (DNA) throughout the economy and fostering the contact-free industry. Korea New Deal, composed of three pillars - Digital New Deal, Green New Deal, and Stronger Safety Net, aims to be the "blueprint for Korea for the next 100 years." 

This workshop was co-hosted in collaboration with the International Academy of CIO, UNDP, and the University of Central Asia. This session is part of the capacity-building workshop series under the World Bank’s Digital Resilience Program financed by the Korea-World Bank Partnership Facility (KWPF).
