    4th Annual General Assembly of WeGo hosted by Seoul City

    The 4th General Assembly of WeGo, for which Seoul is currently serving as the Chair City, will be held in Ulyanovsk, Russia from June 27 to June 30.

    WeGO (World e-Governments Organization of Cities and Local Governments) is an international intercity organization that works to realize sustainable urban development and reduce the intercity information capacity gap through cooperation with e-governments and smart cities as well as digital capacity reinforcement.

    In addition to the general assembly, 10 forums and sessions will be held under separate themes. Cities and companies will present their policies and cases in each forum/session so that participating cities have an opportunity to benchmark outstanding e-government and smart city models to create a perfect digital policy and solution for their own cities.

    Out of the 10 sessions, the Seoul Metropolitan Government will present in the third session under the title of ‘Seoul IoT Project: Resolving urban challenges of Seoul through private-public partnership.’ The presentation will explain the formation of the ‘2015 Bukchon IoT Trial Area’ and introduce the IoT Living Lab City in which the government will form 50 demonstration areas by 2020 to solve urban problems with private companies and citizens.
