Date: October 17 (Thur), 2021
Venue: KRIHS, Sejong, Korea
Theme: National Balanced Development Policy
On October 7, 2021, a policy practitioners’ workshop has been conducted at the Westin Josun Hotel Seoul as a part of the 2020/21 Vietnam Knowledge Sharing Program (KSP) Policy Consultation Program by the National Balanced Development Research Center and Global Development Partnership Center at KRIHS. As Korea and Vietnam face grave issues in preventing the further spread of COVID-19, the workshop was held virtually through video conferencing. The KRIHS research team shared video lectures on the (1) main details of the Five-Year Balanced National Development Plan and its meaning, (2) outcome and significance of developing innovation cities for balanced national development, (3) development and management of industrial complexes in Korea, (4) means of strengthening competitiveness and managing metropolitan areas, and (5) regional development and its implications for balanced national development.
Thereafter, a live Q&A session was held to respond to the inquiries of the trainees. President Tran Thi Hong Minh of Vietnam’s Central Institute for Economic Management, 15 other policy practitioners from Vietnam, and lecturers participated in the virtual Q&A session via Zoom to share questions and views on the Korean experience of balanced national growth. Vietnamese policy practitioners expressed particular interest in how Korea developed rural and underdeveloped areas. The workshop is expected to contribute to reflecting research findings effectively from the 2020/21 Vietnam KSP Policy Consultation Program on Vietnam’s national balanced development policies. Additionally, the workshop provided an opportunity to publicize widely the achievements from the Korean experience in balanced development throughout the international society.
