The World Science & Technology Forum, an extension of the OECD ministerial meetings that began in 1962, opened in Daejeon on Oct. 19.

With the theme this year of “Creating our Common Future Through Science, Technology and Innovation,” the meeting is being held for the first time in Asia. Ministers and vice ministers from 57 countries and representatives from 12 international organizations will attend the gathering, and it runs until Oct. 23. 

In the opening speech, Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn said, “The role of science and technology has been expanding. It now serves as not just a tool for economic growth, but also to improve our quality of life and enhance our cultural activities.”

“It is very meaningful that scientists and technology experts from around the globe gather together to discuss measures to achieve sustainable growth through science and technology, and to achieve development for both developing and industrialized countries,” he added.
