[The Chosun Ilbo, June 18 2008] OECD Sees Internet as Crucial for Economic Progress

World experts discussed ways to use the Internet as a driving force for the recovery of the global economy at the OECD Ministerial Meeting on the Future of the Internet Economy which opened in Seoul on Tuesday.

In a welcoming address, President Lee Myung-bak stressed that the Internet should be a place for trust. "The spread of false and incorrect information through spam e-mails abusing anonymity is threatening people's rational thinking and trust," he said. "The most urgent policy challenge for the Internet industry is to secure trust in transactions that are essential for the Internet economy to continue growing."
