[Korea.net News, Science / Tech, January 5 2008] New gov't aims to revamp Korea's IT sector

Korea’s incoming administration aims to revamp the country’s information technology (IT) sector, so as to better meet the trend towards industrial convergence, officials at the presidential transition team said Saturday (Jan. 5).

In a meeting to review policies being carried out by the Ministry of Information and Communication, President-elect Lee Myung-bak’s transfer committee made clear that wide scale changes are being planned.

They said that IT can no longer remain independent of other industries and that convergence with broadcasting, telecommunication, culture, education, transportation, construction and medical services is the inevitable trend.

President-elect Lee repeatedly said in the run up to his Dec. 19 election victory that he will make 2008 the dawning era of Korea’s digital convergence.
