[Korea.net News, Economy / Industry, December 10 2007] Korea to host 2009 OECD World Forum

Korea will host the 2009 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) World Forum, the government said Monday (Dec. 10).

The knowledge and policy gathering, which will be the third such forum since 2004, aims to improve the use of statistics for evidence-based decision making and the development of a shared-knowledge that can promote social and democratic growth, the National Statistical Office (NSO) said.

The office said over 1,300 participants made up of government policymakers, economists, journalists and civic group leaders from around the world, are expected to come to Korea for the four-day-long gathering.
