Going Global in New Millenium - (16); Globalization Ups Growth


Global understanding is growing, particular as a result of the explosive growth we have witnessed within communications and information technology.

It is transforming our world and economic structures in an unprecedented manner and speed.

This will benefit both the Korean people and the world economy.

The OECD has published recently an overview of the core principles of corporate government which focus of four critical areas, i.a. the concepts of fairness, transparency, accountability and responsibility.

These principles are relevant to all countries and represent an emerging international consensus of the fundamental goal of effective governance that is necessary to access to investment in the area of global product and capital markets.
