KDI, the first think tank of social science

Korea Development Institute (KDI), since its establishment in 1971, has been recognized as a leading think tank of Korea significantly contributing to the economic and social development of Korea. For five decades, KDI has consistently provided policy recommendations and guidance based on in-depth analyses of international and domestic economic conditions and projections while conducting preemptive and empirical studies.

While recognizing the importance of finding new growth engines for prompt economic recovery and sustainability during the trying times of the global economic crisis, KDI is working diligently to put forth applicable policy directions based on comprehensive studies.

KDI, creative production of new knowledge

By enhancing its research capacity and cooperative studies internationally, KDI will achieve world-class excellence in its research, formulate preemptive and applicable economic policies, and at the same time strengthen comprehensive academic studies. In parallel with research, KDI will endeavor to continually disseminate information on pending issues of economic policy to economic agents.

I would like to welcome you to the KDI website. We promise to provide more research outcomes concerning economic and social issues while striving to become the best communication portal that offers information on the government's economic policy direction.

Thank you for your support and encouragement.
