The Korea Development Institute is an autonomous economic policy think tank that was set up by the South Korean government. The Institute was founded in 1971, during a period of fast economic growth, to provide research and analysis of economic policy decisions. KDI aims to contribute to the government and people both in the public and private sectors by providing effective and timely national policy alternatives. KDI concentrates its research on key current issues, develops strong international research network and diverse interdisciplinary joint research projects and actively promotes its research results through internal and external communications.
