Background

Korea has achieved rapid economic development over the last half century, making a remarkable transition from one of the most impoverished countries to OECD status. Effectively designed development strategies and plans of the Korean government were the key factors in this transition to a knowledge-based economy through constant technology advancement, innovation and human resource development.

The Korea Development Institute (KDI), a leading government think tank of Korea which has played an essential role in the planning and designing of Korea’s economic development strategies since 1971. Also, the KDI School of Public Policy and Management (KDI School hereafter), the educational arm of the Korea Development Institute, is strategically positioned to sharing Korea’ economic experiences. Through KDI, the KDI School has direct access to the leading policy makers and researchers in the country. KDI School has also accumulated a wealth of experiences in global knowledge sharing for over 15 years with its regular degree programs, where international students account for more than 40% of the student body, as well as numerous short-term training programs.

KDI would like to propose a workshop on Economic Development Policy and Strategy for Government Officials of the Abu Dhabi Government. The workshop is aimed to share Korea’s socio-economic development strategies & experiences and to provide an opportunity to discuss how the two countries could move forward to a knowledgeable & innovative based economy.

The eight-day workshop will offer officials an invaluable opportunity to explore the Korea’s economic development strategy, the role of government, industrial diversification strategy, innovation policy, private sector development, human resource development and vocational training system.
