KDIS-WB-CAG Policy Forum: Governance in Social Changes
Over the past several decades, China has experienced rapid and sustained growth, managing to maintain a relatively high level of growth during the recent global crisis triggered by the financial woes in Europe and the US.  China’s rapid economic growth, modernization and globalization have led to astounding social changes. However, important problems still remain unsolved such as various implications associated with rapid urbanization, gender inequality issue and education policy problems. Korea is also faced with same problems, going under rapid economic development.
 
With this in mind, KDI (Korea Development Institute School of Public Policy and Management), CAG (Chinese Academy of Governance), and WB (World Bank) propose to organize a forum of leading experts from KDI School, World Bank and Chinese senior government officials aimed at not only better understanding the issues and challenges faced by China but also presenting the set of policy tools available to decision-makers in various sectors of government. The themes explored during the course of high-level policy forum will be based on research and country case studies and will be tailored to address the leading issues and challenges in both countries.
