- Welcome to the website for KDI Economic Information and Education Center (EIEC).
As seen from the recent global financial crisis, economic environments are changing rapidly causing immediate and enormous impacts worldwide. This testifies to the fact that we are now living in the globalized era. It is crucial for each country well as individuals to understand those changes and to quickly adapt to these transitions.
The role of EIEC is to provide information on various economic issues to economic agents in order for them to correctly understand and respond to diverse economic phenomena. To name a few, these assistances include economic education programs to teachers, government officials, and the general public in hopes of leading to better understanding of the global economic status as well as market economy principles. Also, EIEC collects, analyzes, organizes, and offers various and useful economic information and policy trends from all around the world on a real time basis. The ultimate objective of EIEC is to assist the public in making appropriate economic decisions, thereby enhancing public convenience and national competitiveness.
EIEC is committed to the role as a 'New Window into Economy' by providing not only its own economic information but also constantly updated information of the world. The 'New Window into Economy' is also the catch phrase reflecting EIEC's determination for the service.
EIEC promises to work earnestly to provide better customized economic education programs and materials and to compile quality economic information so as to become valuable resource provider to all users.
Thank you.Executive Director,
