Word of Invitation

As part of our efforts to extend the research network around the world, the Korea Development Institute (KDI) organized a joint conference in close collaboration with the Korea-America Economic Association (KAEA) beginning in 2003. Since then, a number of economic scholars and professionals in the US and other countries participated in the conference. The collection of papers presented at the conference was reproduced as conference proceedings for domestic distribution each year and some selected papers were also published in the Korea Development Review, a biannual journal of KDI.

Marking the fourth annual conference, the 2006 KDI/KAEA Conference on “Enhancing Productivity and Sustaining Growth” will be held at KDI on August 8, 2006. Like the previous years, the papers written by the members of KAEA and KDI fellows have been invited as well as papers that are written by domestic researchers. In addition, domestic scholars from academia and professional circles are also participating as discussants and moderators.

This year’s conference will address a wide range of economic policy issues faced by Korea and thirteen papers will be presented under the categories of Trade and FDI Issues, R&D and Productivity Growth, Entrepreneurship and Business Practice Engineering, Bank Capital Regulation and Lending Practices, Stock Ownership Structure and Exchange Rate Policy, and Sectoral Shifts and Entry Regulation.

I hope that the conference will serve as a valuable venue among experts at home and abroad in discussing the current economic issues of Korea, and I look forward to your contribution of valuable comments and ideas. Thank you.
