About KIEP


Message fromKIEP

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Founded in 1989, the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) is a government-funded research institute established to conduct studies, research and analyses of global economic issues that impact the Korean economy, and to help guide the nation toward effective international economic policies.

KIEP is responding to recent developments in the global economy, conducting a wide range of research projects that will offer significant implications for the government’s New Northern and New Southern policies, a new trade policy regime that aims to support inclusive growth, and international macro-financial initiatives in line with the unfolding 4th Industrial Revolution.

We are committed to introducing policies that can elevate the nation’s capacities for innovative growth, and to promote international discourse on issues that impact the global community, as we ensure that KIEP remains an influential global think tank that leads the formulation of international economic policies.

Since its founding, KIEP has conducted insightful studies on newly emerging economies and global regions, and has dedicated itself to the development of trade negotiations and national agendas.

KIEP will continue its policy research on global and regional economies, trade investment and international macro-finance, with the aim of contributing to sustainable growth as a responsible research institute, and establishing itself as a nationally reliable institute through the dedicated efforts of all KIEP members.

On behalf of KIEP, We thank you for the interest you take in our work and ask for your continued support.
