KIET International Seminar
「New Industrial Development Strategy for Job Creation」

Recently, Korea has been seeing a slowdown in its economy in terms of lower job creation and worsening employment quality. The manufacturing industry continuosuly tackles jobless growth while the service industry faces low productivity, leading to the reacing of the limit of decent job creation. In addition, the polarization of economic sectors between export and domestic demand, as well as between major companies and SMEs, is impacting the polarization of job quality.

At this crucial time when we are prioritizing job creation in society, we need to come up with optimal policies to increase employment creation in the whole economy. Above all, we need to devise policies to create sustainable and good quality jobs through industry development including fostreing of new grwoth engines. The Korea economy has reached the desperate point in which we should find measures to develop employment-friendly industries by establishing a virtuous circle between industry development and job creation.

Thus, the Korea Institute for Industrial Economics & Trade, KIET, is holding the International Seminar to discuss and determine industrial development strategies for job creation. At this seminar, we will find new mechanisms and policies for a virtuous cycle between industry development and job creation. We will also come up with measures to increase employment in a qualitative and quantitative manner by achieving and advanced labor market. In addition, the International Seminar offers a venue for theme presentation and heated discussions on job creation by experienced experts in almost every sector such as the munfacturing industry, service industry, SME, regional industry, etc.

I kindly request your attendance at the iNternational Seminar and ask you to share your views to ensure that this venue will be the first milest one in Korea for linking job creation to industrial development strategy.
