Byeong Gi Lee, Professor of Seoul National University and Board Member of Samsung Electronics discussed good practices and lessons from South Korea, whose national economic development venture relied heavily on ICT industry.
“In my opinion, the subject is best suited for the theme of the Africon 2015, ‘Green Innovation for African Renaissance,’ as well as for the national developmental agenda of many African countries,” he remarked in his presentation.
Lee further said currently, South Korea stands among the ten largest nations in measures of economic scale, and it is ranked even higher in ICT infrastructure and competitiveness.
Korea’s past and present experience very well demonstrates how information and communications technology can be used for sustainable national development. Over 365 scientific papers from all over the world were submitted to organizers of the conference, with forty five of the submitted scientific papers presented at the event.
