Opening Plenary
Mapping Global Issues and Rebuilding Growth Strategy
09:40-11:10 / Vista

       Not a few people say the world economy has already seen light at the end of the
       tunnel. Attention is now paid to the sustainable recovery and even further
       development. Increase in productivity and demand is optimistic but jitters from
       indiscriminate terror, oil price, and interest rate put dark cloud over corporate profit
       outlook. Newly rising markets called BRICS might be afraid to go overheated. How
       should we look at the current environment? What are the hot global issues that
       world business and political leaders have in mind? And what are their strategy and
       advice to keep going while controlling risks?

Sessions in Parallel
Semiconductor Technology and Future of Digital World
11:30-12:40 / MGB I

       With the convergence of digital devices going on, the clear division between
       software and hardware, and memory and nonmemory functions is crumbling. One
       such example is System on Chip (SoC) that is emerging to lead the next generation
       semiconductor technology. Along with SoC, NT-based semiconductor and high-
       performance flash memory are the integral part which world major chipmakers pay
       attention to. This session will look at the future digital world powered by the latest
       semiconductor technology.

Building a High-Performance Culture
11:30-12:40 / MGB II


       While many CEOs agree that building a high-performance organization is
       enormously valuable, few accomplish it or even attempt it. Most business leaders
       believe culture is a source of lasting competitive advantage, yet rarely do they take
       time to identify which culture they need and actively manage it. This session will
       help CEOs understand what truly drives a high-performance organization.

Woman Entrepreneurship and ICT (GKP-IKED Session)
11:30-12:40 / MGB IV

       Many women enter entrepreneurship bestowed with great skills and depth of
       knowledge in their particular area of expertise, but with limited experience in
       management and also confronted with specific challenges in that area. Locked into
       the hectic work of launching a young business, they are commonly left with little
       room for strategic planning, and as a result, they may gradually see their enterprise
       stagnate. Today, effective instruments are available for upgrading competences in
       this and other related areas, in part through the use of ICT and new forms of
       networking. This session aims to identify opportunities for how to fulfill the
       potential for management skills training and networking activities for female
       entrepreneurs, which in turn could guide the development of effective
       policymaking tools to foster progress.

Human Stem Cell in the Spotlight
11:30-12:40 / Cosmos

       The cloning of 30 human embryos by Korean scientists, who hope to obtain cells to
       treat Alzheimer’s and other muscular disorders, has pushed stem-cell research to
       the center stage. Some believe this “dream technology” is a great breakthrough, but
       controversy over safety and ethics still envelops it. What are the achievements of the
       recent Korean study, and what barriers must be resolved before stem-cell research
       might be used in the clinical field?

Government Innovation and Governance: Partnership among Government,
Business and Civil Society (MOGAHA Session)
11:30-12:40 / Art Center

       Incredible advances in globalization, information technology and democratization
       imply a shift in paradigm from a rule-oriented government to governance which is
       based on mutual cooperation and understanding. Management of state affairs is an
       issue that concerns not only central government, but also local governments,
       business and civil society. Under such backdrop, this session will focus on plans to
       encourage cooperation and understanding among the key players of state affairs, as
       well as adopt a framework and strategy for promoting future innovations in
       governance.

Bain & Company Plenary I
One Number You Need to Grow: the Power of Net-Promoters
14:20-15:30 / Vista

       A recent study by Bain & Company reveals a strong link between the percentage of
       customers enthusiastic enough to refer a friend to a business and differences in
       growth among competing companies. By substituting a single question—would
       your recommend this product or service to a friend?—for the complex black box of
       the typical customer satisfaction survey, companies can measure customer opinion
       more effectively. And tracking the number of customers who are promoters can
       focus employees on stimulating growth. Led by Fred Reichheld, the world-
       renowned guru in the field of customer loyalty, this session will share classic
       wisdom on loyalty management and discuss how to use net-promoter data to
       improve day-to-day management.

Sessions in Parallel
The Art of Outsourcing and Offshoring
15:50-17:00 / MGB I

       It’s become increasingly difficult for one company to excel at multiple business
       operations and functions. Across industries and regions, there’s an upswing in the
       trend toward outsourcing noncore functions and offshoring key functions to achieve
       greater effectiveness. However, if not managed well, outsourcing can lead
       companies into some dangerous pitfalls. All top managers need to begin by taking a
       “blank sheet approach” to determining out what functions of their organization
       they should keep in-house, and which they should outsource, “in-shore” or offshore.

 Henner Klein, Managing Officer, A.T. Kearney Inc. (Lead Panelist)



Market Expansion Model and Branding Strategy in China
15:50-17:00 / MGB II

       Global leading companies like Walt Disney have been persistent in their marketing
       strategy to develop customers' loyalty. It is called customer centric marketing model
       and it is interesting to look at how this model has been applied during their market
       expansion into the world, including China. It is also important to understand the
       marketing strategy of China’s biggest companies as they just started to sell branded
       products abroad, getting out of the image of OEM leader, and how foreign rivals
       operating in China is reacting.

15:50-17:00 / MGB IV

       More than 60 million overseas Chinese and Chinese entrepreneurs across 140
       countries own 2 trillion dollars in liquid assets, the world’s third largest economy,
       following the US and the EU. Combined with fast-growing mainland China, the
       world’s Chinese business community gains momentum. Participants will have a
       look at today’s Chinese entrepreneur's economy, overseas Chinese investment
       trends in China, as well as cross-traits economic relations and Taiwan merchants in
       China.

Regional vs. Multilateral (POSCO Session)
15:50-17:00 / Art Center

       Regionalism is on the rise. While free trade agreements help promote an open
       marketplace, many fear they inspire a countertrend toward economic blocks and
       stronger protectionism. How can we cope with the backlash from workers in less
       competitive industries whose jobs are threatened by free trade? Is expanding
       regionalism a stepping stone or a stumbling block to WTO negotiations?

Sessions in Parallel
Leading Change: Managing Transformation
17:20-18:30 / MGB II

       All organizations need to change over time. Three main reasons: they’ve entered a
       new stage in the natural life cycle of their business; they must blend their business
       with another because of a merger or acquisition; or shifts in the business landscape
       force them to adapt. However, only a few companies ever truly succeed at
       transforming themselves. What are the fundamental reasons behind the failures?
       How should executives approach and execute a change program? This session
       examines the stories of both wins and losses, and what lessons can we drawn from
       them.

Challenges Facing Universities in Knowledge-based Economy (MOE Session)
17:20-18:30 / Art Center

       What are major challenges confronting world universities in the coming years?
       Demographic change, financial distress, curriculum reform and faculty renewal, just to
       name a few. But how these challenges should be met to raise the quality of the
       educational experience of our young people, the key to the national competitiveness in
       the knowledge-based economy? This session will allow the audience to outline some of
       the problems and strategies with which world universities must deal.

Upgrade of Korea’s Financial Industry: Vision and Strategy

In order to upgrade Korea’s financial industry to the level of western countries, it is quite necessary
to resolve the industry’s unbalanced segment between the first and second tier institutions, and more
importantly, to secure transparency and predictability in financial regulatory policies. The Korean
government tries to abolish unnecessary regulations boldly, while introducing various supervising
devices for prudential regulation. Industries and private research centers say that the market could
draw more attention from investors with more luring systems such as tax breaks on interest earnings,
lowering of thresholds to sell crossover products, and the introduction of a long-term estimation
system on individual managers of stock investment at banks.
This program will help industry experts to envisage Korea’s financial industry after 10 years with the
overall pictures suggested by representatives from government, banking community and consulting
organization.

Part 2 Another Big Bang for Non-banking Financial Sector
15:30-16:00

       Although the Korean banking and credit card industry has gone through significant
       restructuring since the financial crisis, there’s more change yet to come in the
       financial services field. For the next two to three years, the insurance, securities, and
       asset management industries will undergo a drastic restructuring. What issues do
       those three industries face, what will trigger the restructuring, and what will be the
       outcome?


 Sunny Yi, Partner, Bain & Company
Part 3 Basel II Putting into Perspective: Change and Adaptation (IBM Session 1)
16:20-17:20

       Bank for International Settlements (BIS) sets revised timetable for New Basel Capital
       Accord known as Basel II to be applied to major member banks from the end of 2006.
       This means a new order in the financial and monetary market, which is often
       compared to the enforcing WTO Roundtable, but the new accord will be more
       powerful. Only banks with good risk managing ability will survive by having more
       access to customers of good credibility records. Participants at this session will have
       a look at the new system and necessary measures to counter its impact.

       The Basel II Accord is expected to directly affect the bank loaning system and
       indirectly saving, investment and computer systems leading to a whole change in
       the bank’s decision-making structure. Furthermore, the fundamental change in
       banking services will bring a bigger change to the industry and economic sector.
       This session will touch on the overall influence of the Basel II Accord on Korea’s
       financial community and its strategies.

Part 5 Successful M&A Deals: Securing Core Competency
18:30-19:20

        Many financial institutions are wielding M&A as a strategic tool for growing and
        defending their core business. Though mergers and acquisitions have become
        increasingly common in Korea, successful deals are rare. What strategic rationales
        drive M&A in the financial services industry, and what is the key factor in creating
        shareholder value through deals?

OECD Plenary
Strengthening the Resilience of Asian Economies in the Global Context
08:30-09:40 / Vista

       Given the scope and prospects for further liberalization and steady increases in
       trade and financial integration of Asian economies, the rapid growth and long-term
       productivity improvements that underpin the trend rise in Asia's share of the global
       economy seem set to continue. But the financial instability and the economic
       disruption experienced in the late 1990s are a reminder of the need to ensure steady
       improvements in the region's capacity to adapt to change and to adjust in the face of
       disturbances as economies become more complex and interlinked at both global and
       regional levels.

Promoting the Sense of Community in Asia (KT&G Session)
10:00-11:10 / MGB II

       Asia remains one of the fastest growing regions in the world. Despite the financial
       instability in late 1990s, the growing interdependence among Asian economies has
       become the primary regional vehicle for promoting open trade and economic
       cooperation. This session focuses on conditions to further promote economic
       dynamism and the sense of community in the region, leading to global prosperity
       and stability.

Rise of U-Government (KT Session)
10:00-11:10 / Cosmos

        As the general public moves beyond the Internet to adopt broadband, mobile, and
        sensor technology, the e-government model hits a new level of development.
        Today’s so-called ubiquitous government aims to provide citizens with tailored,
        quick, and transparent service. What technological base allows the government to
        connect with any citizen anytime, anywhere and through any kind of device? What
        kinds of projects are most developed countries studying as part of their next-
        generation e-government strategy? How does ubiquitous computing technology
        change our society and economy?

Bain & Company Plenary 2
Convergence in Financial Industry - Opportunity or Threat?
11:30-12:40 / Vista

        Financial boundaries are blurring and regulations are shaping to drive financial
        convergence. New channels are fast emerging in Korea, both technology-based
        and traditional off-line channels, and Korean customers are more ready then ever to
        adopt 'integrated services.'         However, the Korean financial sector is
        underdeveloped and underperforming, almost 20 years behind US. What are the
        key factors that will accelerate or decelerate the convergence trend and what are the
        key success factors to win in this new environment?

        "electronic ink" (e-link) - affect the old printed paper that has still some advantages.
        Will the commercialization of rollable e-paper screens be feasible and how soon?
        What does it mean to the media industry?

       Knowledge Applications of Eland. Innovations that can add value in new ways or
       develop new markets through the application of knowledge are not easily gained
       every day, making them all the more precious. Knowledge can be applied to tools
       and products, processes and labor, and to knowledge itself, and through instances of
       realized shifts in management paradigms, the path to making every member of the
       organization a knowledge worker can be found.

Building Competitive Advantages in China
17:20-18:40 / MGB II

        China has become one of the most important locations for global commerce
        attracting unprecedented level of foreign direct investments surpassing even those
        into the U.S. While there still continues euphoria about the market potential, there is
        a growing recognition that making profit and surviving in the Chinese market is not
        that easy. The Chinese market is highly fragmented, complex, uncertain, and fast
        changing, making it highly challenging for foreign firms. Local firms are also fast
        catching up with foreign firms' differential advantages through imitation and
        learning. What can foreign firms do to sustain their advantages over local firms and
        other competitors from abroad? Also, how can local firms develop competitive
        advantages in a market filled with so many leading global firms?

Private Equity Funds: Europe and Middle East Case Study
17:20-18:40 / Cosmos

       Korean venture capitalists are keen to transforming themselves into a private equity
       fund. The PEF market looks more lucrative because it involves not only venture
       investment but also corporate restructuring and M&As. This session is for both
       venture capitalists and general audience who have already heard much about the
       US market but little about other countries. Here we have interesting private equity
       firms active in Northern Europe and Middle East who talk about the beginning of
       their business, lessons, market outlook, and their success stories.

National Strategy for Medium-Sized but Strong Economies

This session will help participants have a good grip on growth strategies of major advanced nations
and Korea’s policy challenges to achieve the level of 20,000 US dollars in national income by looking
into Korea’s population, income and industry structure. It will also help build Korea’s growth
strategy and discuss suggestions for national vision or policy objectives provided by academic
experts, economists and NGO leaders from UK, Germany and France.

Part 2 Education and Human Resource Management in France
10:50-12:00


        Korea is now searching for a better direction of the advanced education, university
        or graduate level. We are also trying to reform the recruiting and training system
        for civil servants. France is
        well known for its divided system of university vs. grandes ecoles such as ENA. We
        seek to learn how France harmonized the traditional public education in
        universities and the elite education, especially that for civil service. We would like
        to understand the direction and philosophy of the education reform in France at
        present. France’s advanced education system and reform directions for universities
        and civil services will provide valuable lessons for Korea.

Part 3 Long-term Recession and the Reform in Germany
13:40-14:50


       Korea is now experiencing declining growth rate, and so is Germany. The most
       important reason behind this GDP trend in Germany should be the economic
       burden after unification and related budget deficit. What are the main reasons of
       this long-term recession in Germany? What are the direction and major tasks in
       Germany’s economic reform? What should Germany do to strengthen its driving
       force for an economic reform? Since budget deficit is a very important source of the
       German economic problem, we would like to know the government’s recent policy
       measures to fight against it. What are the long-term prospects and its influence on
       EU economic integration? The German experience in the long-term recession and
       speed of the reform will provide valuable lessons for Korea.

Part 4 Balanced Development among Regions in Italy
16:00-17:10

       Korea is trying to relocate administrative capital city as an effort to achieve balanced
       development among regions. A regional economic difference between the northern,
       central, and southern part of Italy has made it a big problem for balanced
       development. We seek to learn from Italy’s experiences by examining measures for
       balanced economic development between regions. Compared to the past, how
       different are the roles of government and the firm and the citizen in the new
       regional development policy? What is the increasing role of the EU in closing the
       regional gap? Italy’s experiences on regionally balanced development will provide
       valuable lessons for Korea.

 Jeong-sik Lee, Professor, Anyang University (Moderator)



Part 5 Labor Relations & Unemployment Policy in UK
17:30-18:40
       Korea is known to have a militant labor union, which is often cited as the main
       huddle for FDI attraction. The government regulations since 1980s rationalizing the
       labor activities and the competitiveness pressure in the globalization era were also
       important reasons behind the successful labor relation in the U.K. What was the
       most critical government policy that changed the attitude of the labor union? How
       has the present Labor Party handled the high expectation by the labor union. We
       also seek to discuss how U.K. government tackles the unemployment issue now, for
       this is a very important part of the labor relation. What seems to be the success
       factors behind this good performance in employment? The experience of the U.K. in
       the labor relations and unemployment policy will provide valuable lessons for
       Korea.
