KIET International Seminar
「Establish a Model for Promoting Industrial Cooperation with Developing Countries」

Industrial policy has recently re-emerged as an important area of policy, especially among developing countries. Among developing countries, there is an increasing awareness that industrialization can contribute to economic development and the reduction of poverty. Advanced countries have also become cognizant that excessive de-industrialization can cause ecoonomic crises, and are introducing active measures for reindustrialization.

South Korea's success in reducing poverty and developing its economy through industrialization has served as a learning model for many developing countries. In the process of Korea's sequential advancements in industry, from light industries to industries driven by innovative technologies such as ICT, the development of the heavy & chemical industry was a crucial turning point, which provides a case study that illustrates the features of Korea's industrial development process. However, considering that many developing countries that implemented similar policies experienced as many failures as successes indicates that there is a need to engage in international comparisons to better understand the factors involved.

In response, the Korea Institute for Industrial Economics & Trade plans to host a seminar in which participants can introduce and discuss leading examples of heavy and chemical industry development and compare the factors that led to success or failure, for the purpose of identifying the directions for future industrial policies and to seek the means for industrial cooperation with developing countries. This seminar will introduce experts from the major countries from various regions that have undergone the development of heavy and chemical industries, including Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines in Asia, Brazil in South America, and Algeria in Africa, and present the factors behind their successes or failures. We believe that this international comparison of policies on heavy and chemical industrialization will produce useful insights not only rearding industrial policies in developing countries, but also regarding future directions for industrial cooperation. We sincerely hope that you will honor us with your participation in this seminar.
