National Information Society Agency (NIA)

In May 2009, the National Information Society Agency (NIA) has merged with the Korea Agency for Digital Opportunity and Promotion (KADO) keeping the name of NIA. Both agencies have been at the center of pioneering efforts in achieving ‘ICT and Knowledge Information Power Korea’. The history that NIA and KADO have accomplished during the past two decades is itself the history of Korea’s national informatization. Both agencies have spared no effort to lead Korea into the present status as an ICT Powerhouse. Major achievements include building the Korea Information Infrastructure (KII), establishing e-Government, promoting new information technology application in businesses, bridging the digital divide, and developing information culture
