In his keynote speech, President Jeong overviewed Korea's S&T policy directions for responding to the future society and Korea-ASEAN cooperation measures. In the plenary session, he emphasized that the ASEAN region should more actively focus on S&T, such as digital innovation and AI technology, to enhance national competitiveness in a rapidly changing global environment, such as falling economic growth, climate change, and pandemic response, and digital transformation.

 

By actively participating in the symposium, KISTEP has raised interest in STI in ASEAN countries and laid the foundation for networks with Korea-Australia and ASEAN regions.
