The lecture was attended by the 11th batch DCPP Students, Professor Jeong Hyeok, and other graduate students. The lecture analyzed the relationship between public investment and growth in transportation and telecommunications through the Dynamic Panel Approach, addressed the differing views of scholars about the impact of public investment on economic growth, and discussed the rationale, methodology and results of adopting the Dynamic Panel Approach.
