The Global HR Forum 2012 welcomes over
120 global opinion-leaders from 60 countries
worldwide. This year’s conference will focus on
the theme “Better Education, the Best Welfare.”
We are living in the midst of a global downturn
and ever increasing polarization of wealth. The
best way for the socially disadvantaged to escape
poverty is through equipping them with the means
to survive on their own. The optimal way to achieve
this is by better education.
Lee Ju-ho, Minister of Education, Science
and Technology said, “Welfare is a key topic
of discussion not only in Korea, but around the
world.”
Many elections around the globe have taken
place this year with more to come. The U.S.
presidential election is to be held early next month
and Korea’s presidential election is slated for
December. The debate on social welfare is as hot
as ever among politicians, especially with a weak
global economy.
This year’s forum will reidentify the simple
truth that teaching the means to earn a living rather
than handing out money will lead to the betterment
of an individual, society and country.
Participants will discuss how best to deal with
the most pressing global issues we are faced with
during the current turbulent economic times.
Scholars all over the world point out that the
fundamental solution to the world’s financial
woes needs to be found through human ingenuity
and creativity. Put simply, the solution lies within
talented people.
We live in a time when the collective and
collaborative efforts of the global community
are more important than ever before. The Global
HR Forum aims to provide guidance for global
leadership and cooperation that are vital to achieve
a better tomorrow.
In his keynote speech, former British Prime
Minister Gordon Brown who was appointed as a
special global education envoy to UN Secretary
General Ban Ki-moon last July will talk about
“Overcoming the Global Economic Crisis by
Increasing International Cooperation.”
Mr. Brown stressed, “We are seeing a transition
in the world economy where there is an imbalance
between the West and Asia in particular and
we need international action to boost the world
economy.” He called for a global strategy where
the International Monetary Fund and G20 be more
directly involved in making a global growth plan.
Daniel Shapiro who is the founder and director
of the world-renowned Harvard International
Negotiation Program will deliver a speech on
“Negotiating to Change the World.”
Other distinguished speakers during the three-
day forum include Richard Freeman, Professor of
Economics at Harvard University, Anne Krueger,
Professor of International Economics at Johns
Hopkins University and Park Yung-chul, Professor
of International Studies at Korea University. These
scholars will discuss the transition of the global
economy as it looks for the next source of growth.
Professor Freeman says that with the huge
investments in R&D and higher education
around the world and the global transmission of
knowledge, the frontier for growth is continuously
expanding. So the missing element is to organize
and coordinate job creation to bring us closer to the
frontier. “If we do not get young people employed
quickly, their skills and attitudes will worsen and
we will lose a great opportunity to improve living
standards for everyone,” he said.

“We have deflated (Korea’s) education bubble
created by an expansion in private education and
an indiscriminate enrollment in college. Instead,
we plan to focus on education welfare,” said
Minister of Education, Science and Technology
Lee Ju-ho, summing up the education policy of
the Lee Myung-bak administration.
In an interview with the Korea Economic
Daily, Minister Lee also said the education
ministry will continue to push universities to
restructure. He will deliver the opening address
of the Global HR Forum 2012 which will present
the results and prospects of the Lee Myung-bak
administration’s education policy. The three-
day forum will be jointly sponsored by the Korea
Economic Daily, the Ministry of Education,
Science and Technology and the Korea Research
Institute for Vocational Education and Training.
Lee said the nation’s passion for education has
led to an economic miracle, but there have been
side effects such as an education system centered
on college entrance exams and an explosion
in private education. In order to normalize
the nation’s education system, he said the
government will expand its policy of driving out
mismanaged universities.
Minister Lee said Global HR Forum 2012
will be an opportunity to reexamine Korea’s
education policy and its strategy for the
future. About this year’s theme of “Better
Education, the Best Welfare,” he said “the
best welfare is essentially education and we
have to create a virtuous cycle of economic
development and talent cultivation.

class. He said the Lee Myung-
bak administration has done a successful job
of deflating the education bubble and has
strengthened the education welfare of the low-
income class.
He counted among the administration‘s
educational achievements (i) a fall in
higher education enrollment and a
better job market for high school
graduates, (ii) a focus on creativity
rather than an education system
cent ered on col l ege ent rance
exams, (iii) a fall in educational
expenses, (iv) restructuring
universities and (v)

21.6 trillion won in 2009. Moreover, the rate
of increase in college tuition has slowed from
9.1% for national and public universities and
6.2% for private universities during the previous
administration to a 0.45% fall and a mere 0.06%
increase during the current administration.
Korea’s total investment in research and
development was 45 billion dollars last year which
was fifth in the world and only trailed that of the
United States, Japan, China, Germany and France.
Government scholarships have jumped to 1.9
trillion won this year from 97.9 billion in 2009.
Starting next year, the government will
expand the nation’s compulsory education to
include three and four-year-olds, providing equal
access to education for all children. Moreover, an
increase in “smart education” will enable students
to learn any subject they want anywhere they are
at little or no cost.
Last l y, he sai d t he Kor ean Wave has
heightened overseas interest in Korean history,
language and culture and has led to an increase in
international students studying in Korea.
This year’s Global HR Forum will be an
opportunity to showcase Korea’s education
model which has been the foundation of
the nation’s rapid industrialization and
democrati zati on. The forum wi l l al so
highlight how to develop and apply human
talent to better prepare for a post-financial
crisis world.
“The Innovation of Education through
Smart Education” session will explore the rapid
advancement of information technologies and
social changes.
The session will discuss the school of the
future and ‘Smart Education’ as to better adapt to
these changes. Last year, the Korean government
introduced the ‘Smart Education Strategy,’
which is its learning policy for the 21st century.
The session will introduce Korea’s policies and
case studies on converging education systems,
environments and teaching methods with smart
technology.
Korea has experienced rapid economic and
social development in the last half century to
emerge as a democracy and the fourth-largest
economy in Asia from one of the poorest countries
in the world.
The “Offcial Development Assistance(ODA)
and the Role of Korea in Human Resources
Development(HRD)” session will look at how
human resources development played a key role
in Korea‘s development. When Korea became a
member of the OECD Development Assistance
Committee(DAC) in 2010, it became the only
nation to make the switch from an aid recipient to
a donor country.
It is important to provide the relevant
information to developing countries, including
those in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, that
may be interested in benchmarking Korea’s
human resources development system to guide
their own development. This session will look
at Korea’s economic development model and its
implications for developing countries.
