Message from the president
My name is Sooyong Park, and I am the president of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency.
Representing 11% of the gross national product (GNP) and more than 30% of exports, the telecommunications industry is leading Korea’s economy. In particular, the role it plays as an essential factor in the competitiveness of other industries, including the automobile, shipbuilding, and medical sectors, is becoming critical. In this 'Smart Era,' which started with smart phones and is expanding to smart TV, smart work, and the like, IT industries are laying the foundation. The National IT Industry Promotion Agency is preparing development strategies and policies for the continuous growth of such important IT industries. As well, NIPA is fully dedicated to the creation of new future industries by laying the foundation for the growth of industries, securing the global competitiveness of the SW field, and promoting collaborations between IT industries and other industries. NIPA will contribute to the national economy by responding to the call of the times, which is 'fusion, collaboration and green growth,' with customer-oriented management based on professionalism and creativity
