[SNU GSIS BK21] Special Lecture Series (27) - 22 September (Fri) 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm (KST)
SNU GSIS BK21 FOUR Program hosts various events inviting prominent figures to deliver distinguished lectures with our Special Lecture Series.
For our twenty seventh session, we are inviting Senior Fellow of Dept. of Industry and Market Policies, Korea Development Institute (KDI), Dr. Sanghoon Ahn.
He will talk on the theme of "Industrialization and Productivity".
Please refer to below for further details:
We examine how transportation and industrial complexes influence the productivity of manufacturing establishments. The study achieves this by combining and analyzing microdata and industrial location data for manufacturing establishments in Korea, from 2007 through 2014. The annual productivity growth rate of establishments located within industrial complexes was generally higher than that of establishments outside. The productivity growth enhancing effect of industrial complexes was observed in low and medium-technology industries, but not in high-technology industries. The results therefore suggest a new policy is required for the high-technology industry in order to provide a better link to highly skilled labor, academia and research institutes to help transform the industrial complexes of Korea into technological innovation centers in a transition to a knowledge-based economy.
Participation is mandatory for BK Fellows (absence in BK events may affect next semester's selection).
