Creative Korea 2013 is a convention launched in a move to bring together creative ideas, creative people, and creative venture businesses. It is based on the theory that knowledge-based capital, such as creative ideas, skills and technology generated by individuals and small businesses are a key driver for today’s fast-growing society. With the rise of social media platforms, such intangible assets are increasingly becoming a dominant force for building up a new era of Korean economy.
Creative Korea 2013 is aimed to support those with creative minds by providing a variety of events, including open conferences, seminars and exhibitions. The four-day convention, which is mainly hosted by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning, kicks off on Dec. 12 and runs until 15.
In line with Creative Korea 2013, the government bodies and institutions are continuing to strive toward achieving creative economy; and there are also experts from the fields of science & technology, ICT and finance, playing an influential role in shaping the groundwork for creative economy. Among them are Korea Finance Platform Co. Chairman Kim Dong-yun, Co-head of the Korea Association of Science & Technology Kim Su-dong and Chairman of the IT Professionals Association of Korea Cho Sung-kap, who are making their earnest efforts in establishing fundamental tools for creative economy as initiating members of Creative Economy Planning Committee.
