KRIHS Launches Second-year Program of KIUDA

About: Opening ceremony for the second-year program of KRIHS-IDB Urban Development Academy
Date: July 6, 2015

The Global Development Partnership Center (GDPC) of KRIHS hosted the opening ceremony for the KRIHS-IDB Urban Development Academy, or KIUDA, on July 6 at KRIHS. For the week-long training program jointly organized with the IDB, 16 high-ranking officials from ten different Latin America and Carribean countries visited KRIHS. As the participants of the program, they will enjoy the opportunity to share knowledge and Korea’s experience in land, housing and smart cities development and building municipal competitiveness and also discuss collaborative opportunities with Korea in the future. 
  The opening ceremony was attended by Housing Minister Rosendo Mesalles of Costa Rica, Transport Minister Morais Guy of Jamaica and Urban Development Minister José Góchez of El Salvador. KRIHS President Kim Dongju welcomed the guests and wished this program would contribute to building closer development partnerships between Korea and the LAC countries in his welcoming remarks, and Mr. Andres Blanco from the IDB pointed that Korea’s development experience could provide solutions to the housing problems in LAC countries in his speech. Minister Morais Guy replied to them by expressing an expectation on the program to be a foundation to build stronger partnerships with LAC countries and Korea.
  As the organizer, GDPC designed the program focused on discussions instead of one-sided delivery of lectures and knowledge, hoping each of the LAC countries find policy implications for land planning and development.
