Guide Korea's IT Information Hub

Information communication has already settled down into the life of Korea and is growing as a core industry of our country. According to the International Institute for Management Development in Switzerland, Korea is ranked in the highest levels of IT infrastructure, as first in broadband communications subscribers and fifth in internet subscribers.

In the 21st century, many objects will become intelligent and ever-present spaces will increase where varied information can be exchanged anytime, anywhere. As the IT market size is expected to reach $730 billion in the year 2010, countries in the world are competing with each other to occupy the front line of that future promising market.

Korea also should try to grow on the basis of its present IT infrastructure environment through the training of high-tech experts and by developing state-of-the-art core technologies. I hope that the Korea IT Times will be a good guide, taking a role as Korea's IT industry information hub from now on.

Promote Korea's IT Industry to the World

Let me extend my congratulations on the publication of the first issue of the Korea IT Times. This magazine, dedicated to IT news and reporting, will contribute to publicizing Korea's IT industry to the world and its readers will be able to grasp the trends of both domestic and foreign IT industries.

In the past ten years, Korea has witnessed remarkable development in its IT industry, which has impressed not only the world but Koreans themselves. Korea's IT manufacturing industry is the world's fourth largest in terms of production. This nation also prides itself in having the world's best high-speed information network.

The IT industry has become a crucial element in increasing the value added and enhancing competitiveness of not only its own, but of other industries such as automobiles, shipbuilding, biotechnology and energy. For Korea to become a true IT leader, it has to further strengthen its industrial competitiveness by integrating IT into brick-and-mortar industries. This will also help us to achieve a per capita income of $20,000. I hope that on top of promoting Korea's IT industry to the world, it will serve to strengthen the foundation of the industry through in-depth reporting on the trends of IT and the global market.

Minister of Information and Communication
Take on Role Bridging Korean and Overseas IT

At a time when IT has settled down as the core powerhouse of our economy and its size and importance are increasing day by day, I believe the launch of the Korea IT Times, a special IT magazine, is a very meaningful event. I want you not only to provide a variety of information on the domestic and overseas IT industry to world readers, but also to take the role of being a bridge between the Korean and world market to help Korean IT companies enter the world market and overseas or international companies to invest in Korea.

In addition, I would like to ask you to join actively with us for the successful implementation of the "IT 839 Strategy" in which we, the Ministry of Information and Communication, are making efforts with all our heart to gain the early $20,000 GNP based on IT and we expect you to contribute greatly in achieving this goal. Once again, I extend my hearty congratulations on the publication of Korea IT Times, and wish its eternal progress.

Fulfill the Information Needs in Korea's IT Sectors

I am very pleased to learn that the KDC group and the Korea Times will launch a monthly magazine, Korea IT Times, that will fulfill the information needs of businesses and investors interested in Korea's IT sectors. Given the lucrative nature of Korea's IT industry, there has been a remarkable lack of dedicated sources of IT news and information in English, the global language of business and investment. Now, the Korea IT Times should be of immense help to the entire IT industry in Korea as well as in overseas countries. I congratulate the companies and their staff members for undertaking such a worthwhile task. I hope that everybody involved in the IT sector takes advantage of the opportunity provided by Korea IT Times.

To the Readers of Korea IT Times

It is my pleasure to congratulate the Korea IT Times on its inaugural issue. As Korea's only Englishlanguage publication for technology leaders, the Korea IT Times is bound to play an important role in this dynamic industry.

Korea is a world leader in communications technology and during my time here I have been fortunate to observe this leadership firsthand. While the technologies involved change rapidly, Koreans have shown the innovation and hard work necessary to succeed in this competitive global market. I am confident Korea IT Times will contribute to the important goal of making Korea the "Hub of Asia." We live in an exciting time as the Internet extends to the furthest corners os the globe and instantaneous communication becomes commonplace for billions of people. Technologies that bring people together across continets and cultures can contribute to making the world a more open and peaceful place. I again congratulate the Korea IT Times on their part in this exciting endeavor and send my best wishes for this project's success.

Congratulatory message by the Ambassador

A new monthly magazine-Korea IT Times aiming at introducing the IT industry of the Republic of Korea to the outside world has come out. On the occasion of its first publication, I would like to extend to you my heart-felt congratulation! As the development of IT has ushered in an exciting and fast-changing era, Korea IT Times will serve as a window for the mutual understanding between ROK and the rest of the world. It is well-known that the advancement of IT industry in ROK for almost ten years, particularly in the aspects such as R&D, Creativity, technological industrialization of information technology, has given a great impetus to the economic development. I hope that Korea IT Times will provide a platform for information sharing among different sectors in IT circle, give full play to its role as a bridge for China-ROK IT cooperation, make favorable contributions to the regional economic development.

Ambassador of India
Expect complementarity role between two countries

I am glad to know that the Korea Digital Communications Corporation, a pioneer in the field of information and telecommunication for the past thirty two years, will be launching a new monthly magazine specializing in IT sector called "Korea IT TIMES". Publication like this will go a long way in creating better awareness and understanding about the rapidly developing IT industry in the Republic of Korea. Whereas the Republic of Korea is very strong in IT hardware, India has emerged as a global player in IT software. Software exports grew from 9.8 billion US dollars in fiscal year 2002-03 to 12 billion US dollars next year. Exports of IT and related services are expected to reach 57 billion US dollars by 2008. The BPO sector is growing at 60-70% annually. Complementarity between the ROK and India needs to be explored and synergised. I think, media can play a very important role in this. I congratulate the publishers and wish them a grand success in their new endeavour.

Ambassador of Russia
Furthering Cooperation Between Korea and Russia

As is widely known, IT is the most rapidly developing industry in the world and the main economic growth engine of the Korean economy. Russia has also been paying great attention to the development of its IT industry and now has very advanced results in a number of IT sectors. Our countries, Russia and South Korea, deeply understand the importance of international cooperation for further enhancement of their IT industries. For this reason, the agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Republic of Korea on science and technology cooperation was concluded in 1990 followed by agreements on industrial cooperation, and cooperation in the field of telecommunications and information technologies. In the framework of joint research programs sponsored and supported by the governments of Russia and South Korea, Russian and Korean research institutes realized more than 20 joint IT projects in the most advanced sectors of IT including microcomputers, nanomaterials, laser technologies, optoelectronics, new radioceramics, ion implantation technology, new program products and new LED technology. I hope that your new magazine, Korea IT Times, will contribute to the further development of cooperation between our countries in IT field.

The demand for swift and accurate information has never been greater at this time of Korea's remarkable growth in the IT industry. A specialized publication such as Korea IT Times demonstrates a grand initiative in supporting the advancement of Korea's IT sector and technological innovation. Given the rapid growth of the Korean IT industry, we are in need of more information at a faster rate and with more accuracy. The establishment of the Korea IT Times, offering the latest trends in the IT industry in English, will be a huge step in fostering more foreign investment and enabling faster flow of technology. In addition, it will serve as a catalyst in promoting business between Korean and foreign IT companies for increased productivity and synergy through technological cooperation. On behalf of American Chamber of Commerce in Korea, I would like to congratulate the Korea IT Times on its successful launch and look forward to witnessing the advancement of the Korean IT sector with the services of the Korea IT Times.

Helping to Promote Trade and Relations Between Two Sides

On behalf of the European Union Chamber of Commerce(EUCCK), I would like to express our congratulations to the Korea IT Times magazine on its launch and publication of its first issue. The launch of Korea IT Times marks a critical and exciting point in the relationship between Korea and the European Union. The European Union became the biggest foreign investor in Korea in 2003 and remains one of Korea's most important trade partners. Our investments in Korea are also a sign of confidence in this country. The European Union Chamber of Commerce represents today the opinion, ideas but also difficulties of 700 members doing business in Korea and dealing daily with issues. The EUCCK would be pleased to take steps with the Korea IT Times in helping to promote trade and relations in the IT industry between Korea and the European Union.

Hyosung Information System CEO
Cornerstone to Buttress IT Industry

Congratulations! Korea is one of the world's most conspicuous powerhouses in the IT Industry. Unfortunately, it hasn't had any reliable English news media specialized in IT to help the local IT community communicate with the world. In this regard, the publication of the Korea IT Times has significant meaning. The Korea IT Times will help the world understand the technological advancement and potential of the Korean IT industry. It is expected to deliver to the audience what the Korean IT industry looks like and contribute to clearing up any distorted pictures of the industry. Through this kind of effort, it will be a cornerstone to buttress the IT industry, laying a firm foundation for growth. The Korea IT Times will live up to expectations: It will provide fresh views and news analyses on various topics of the IT industry. Translating local news into English is a minimum goal. It is expected to convey the true picture of the Korean IT industry to the international community. I sincerely hope that the Korea IT Times will grow as an influential new medium along with the Korean IT industry. Good luck to Korea IT Times!

Korea IT Times to Promote Domestic IT Industry Overseas

The physical distance between regions is being overcome along with the development of the IT industry. It is encouraging that our nation's IT level has reached a worldwide level, but this has been achieved as a result of efforts of global corporations in the domestic market. I believe that from now on, we have to make our IT industry known all over the world, and that global corporations' domestic investment as well as the overseas advancement of domestic IT corporations, has to be actively engaged. In that regard, our expectations for the Korea IT Times are very great.
