September 30, 2008 15:00 - 16:30 (Seoul)

Watch an excerpt of the session above. (in English as interpreted from Korean)

Transcript (English, 136 KB)

“I believe in the market economy, but not a breakaway market economy. The government has to play a role in monitoring it”.

Credited with leading his country back to economic health from the brink of bankruptcy 10 years ago, former South Korean President Kim Dae-jung offered his views on the current financial crisis engulfing the United States. With nearly 200 young professionals from 12 Asia Pacific countries tuning in, “the size is different, but the nature is the same” noted Kim, and suggested that the US might find it useful to examine the Korean approach to recovery.

Kim spoke via videoconference from the GDLN affiliate in Seoul, the Korea Development Institute, as the featured speaker for the third session of “Catalysts of Change”. Organized by GDLN Asia Pacific (Global Development Learning Network), ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) and the World Bank, the session was moderated by World Bank Regional Communications Manager Peter Stephens.
