His Excellency Dr Yoon-Je Cho, ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the UK, will give a public lecture at LSE on Tuesday 2 May. He will speak on Reform, Innovation and Internationalisation: the challenges of the new Korean economy.
In the 1960s, Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world, and was under authoritarian rule until the mid 1980s. Since then Korea has undergone a series of political and economic reforms to emerge as a free market economy. Its economy is now the 11th largest in the world. This provides the world with a fascinating case study of how a war-ravaged country can develop and reform over a relatively short period of time.
Howard Davies, director of LSE, will chair this event.
Reform, Innovation and Internationalisation: the challenges of the new Korean economy is on Tuesday 2 May 2006 at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A.
