- Through scientific and empirical research, KDI has contributed to the establishment of national agendas, presented the blueprint for Korea’s recovery from multiple national crises, and laid the foundations for policy systems and institutional fundamentals including Korea’s medical insurance system which has received widespread global praise amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

□ In a statement, KDI President Jeong Pyo Choi affirmed that "KDI will continue to work with leading research institutions from around the world to find meaningful solutions to economic challenges on both the domestic and global, and to secure KDI’s place as a world-leading think tank."
