K-TECH Silicon Valley 2013

    About     Greetings

Welcome to K-TECH @ Silicon Valley 2013!

We are in the midst of the rapidly changing global economic paradigm. The imagination and cre-ativity-oriented soft power is now emerging as the leading motive for the economic development while the labor, natural resources , and knowledge used to be considered as the growth factors in economy in the past.

To keep pace with this new paradigm, our government will try to realize ‘the creative economy’. In the heart of the paradigm, there exists the creation of new value and market with the union of the various sectors of technologies and industries. And software is in the pivot of the creation and convergence.

This year, we have reached the sixtieth anniversary of US-Korea alliance. By increasing the exchange and cooperation in the fieldof software technology, we hope for more creation of ‘the Economic Cooperation Model’ from which both countries can benefit.And we hope K-Tech Silicon Valley 2013 would become the valuable opportunity to expand the exchange and coop-eration in the fieldof software technology.

We sincerely wish you enjoy the conference and the programs and join us in achieving more innovative and productive partnership between the US and Korea. Thank you for joining us at K-Tech Silicon Valley 2013.


Choi, Mun-kee
Minister of Science, ICT and Future Planning
