About MKE and the Industrial Complex Cluster Program:
The Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE) is a product of Korea’s past success and future ambition.
Over the past generation, Korea has soared to remarkable heights as the nation industrialized and rapidly transformed into an economic powerhouse. Now at the doorstep of entering the world’s elite, Korea looks to its economic future and aspires to craft a vibrant, wealthy society with an increased focus on a new type of economy. The Ministry of Knowledge Economy was created to achieve this ambition.
Korea implemented the Industrial Complex Cluster Program in 2005 in order to convert Korean industrial complexes, which are crucial to the nation’s economic development, from mere production agglomerations into places of innovation, where the development of new knowledge and better value maintains its own virtuous cycle. Since its launch, the program has taken initiative in maximizing corporate growth potential through active networking among industries, universities, research institutes, and government.
