SEOUL, June 14 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean government delegation will visit Brazil and Peru next week to promote its electronic government systems, the ministries of interior and foreign affairs said Wednesday.

The team led by a senior official of the Ministry of the Interior plan to visit the South American countries through Tuesday.

In Peru, the delegation plans to hold talks with senior officials from the Prime Minister's Office, and the Ministry of Transport and Communications. It is also scheduled to hold sessions to train Peruvian civil servants on the use of e-government.

The two countries will sign a memorandum of understanding on the construction of an e-government cooperation center and kick off joint projects to build the system, the ministries said.

The delegation will then travel to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to hold related forums and conferences.

The trip indicates South Korea has built wider links to promote its e-government system not only to central governments but provincial governments in the continent, the interior ministry said.
