The world economy is experiencing fundamental changes in the economic development
paradigms such as the progression of globalization, emergence of energy
and environmental problems, and acceleration of technological innovation.
Accordingly, each country is rushing to come up with new economic growth
strategies, especially making an effort to transform into a high value added and
environmental-friendly industrial structure. Korea is also converting from the
‘catch-up model’ of the past into the ‘trend-setter model’, and seeking to expand
the economic volume of the domestic demand by increasing value added of the
existing industries and vitalizing service industries, and also pursuing green
growth strategies of utilizing the solutions of environmental and energy problems
as new growth opportunities.
This research tries to suggest that scientific and technological innovation
should play a very important role in seeking Korea’s new growth engines to cope
with various changes of world economic environment by performing both theoretical
and empirical analysis.
This report tries to seek S&T policy direction to cope with changing economic
environments such as the possibility of inflation due to the increase in international
raw material prices, the progression of openness of world trade like FTAs, the increase of unstability in economy due to world financial crisis, and the emergence
of so-called low carbon green growth paradigm in the world.
Specifically, this report introduces the relationship between inflation and R&D
activities in Korean economy, the scientific and technological impact of
Korea-US Free Trade Agreement, the impact of current financial crisis on the private
R&D activities, and Korean government’s plans and developments on pursuing
low carbon green growth and discovering new driving forces.
