Abstract

The overall objective of the project is to foster the technological development of Korean industry. The project will help establish and develop KTDC whose primary purpose will be to provide financial assistance for relatively risky software-intensive Research, Development and Engineering (RD&E) subprojects. Specifically the project would consist of two major components: (a) Institutional development of KTDC comprising: (i) consulting services to strengthen KTDC's project appraisal and implementation capabilities, and to assist KTDC in carrying out periodic studies and surveys of Korean industry's RD&E programs and areas of potential development, and invitation of experts from other institutions in Bank member countries that are of similar nature to KTDC to help train KTDC staff, and (ii) training of KTDC staff and the purchase of educational materials, (b) A line of credit to help cover the estimated foreign exchange requirements of subprojects to be financed by KTDC during 1982-1984.
