    Seoul Metropolitan Government will hold a policy hearing session with the theme The Voice of Earth-Shaking Information Technology (IT) Developers at the Multipurpose Hall on the 8th floor of the new Seoul City Hall building at 7:00 PM on June 24 (Monday).

    Seoul was named the No. 1 e-government in the world on five consecutive occasions (selected biennially) in the announcement made by the E-Governance Institute of Rutgers University under the sponsorship of the Public Technology Institute of the United States. Behind the IT innovation that accomplished great urban development are IT developers. Still, the life of IT developers is by no means easy. Their health deteriorates because they often work late at night, and they do not receive sufficient compensation.

    I have started thinking over what the city can do for IT developers. Thus, this policy discussion is to be held by inviting them.

    Please come and share your stories with us. We at Seoul Metropolitan Government will strive to do what we can for you. I will also ask you to think what you can do for Seoul through changes in IT. See you at the discussion meeting.
