IT leaders promote technology

Information technology leaders, including executives at telecom companies, are promoting Korean technology in foreign countries. They are meeting with university students and corporate executives. Nam Joong-soo, president of KT Corp., Korea’s largest fixed-line service provider, held a lecture Friday in Boston for about 300 masters and doctorate degree students from Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Mr. Nam spoke on how information technology can be defined as “3C” - convergence, change and customers. Above all, he said, customers will have a big impact on the future of the industry. Mr. Nam will hold investor relation sessions in New York and Los Angeles before returning to Korea on Wednesday. Kim Shin-bae, president and chief executive officer of SK Telecom, introduced Korea’s IT industry yesterday while presenting plans for cooperation between Korea and Finland at economic cooperation talks held in Helsinki. Mr. Kim is part of the economic mission traveling in Europe with President Roh Moo-hyun. “Korea has a very high broadband distribution rate and an active data usage rate, while Finland has excellent information and communications technology. I believe the two countries can achieve good performance collaborating in areas like digital home networks and electronic trade,” he said. Yim Chu-hwan, director of the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, will give a special lecture in Toronto, Canada today. by Wohn Dong-hee, Kim Won-bae
