The G20 Global Leadership Program is being co-hosted by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance, and the Korea Development Institute (KDI) School of Public Policy and Management. The program aims to bring together experienced managers and stakeholders from various ministries dedicated to improving global development and G20 development goals. The Korean government has made this program possible as an integral part of its commitment to the G20 Seoul Development Consensus for Shared Growth “to add value to and complement existing development commitments.” The objective of the program is to enable participants to enhance their contributions towards reaching G20 development goals set forth at the Seoul Summit and drive the momentum in implementing action plans so continuity is established at each subsequent G20 summit.
The program has been designed for experienced managers working in development and G20 agenda-setting, whether from the donor, recipient, facilitator, mediator, or change agent vantage point, to come together into a classroom to learn about Korea’s exemplary economic development and also share each other’s respective experiences in helping overcome today’s complex challenges to achieving global sustainable development.
This is an intensive program comprised of three modules conducted over three weeks. Courses will be conducted Monday- Friday. Given the respective backgrounds of program participants, participants are expected to play an active role in each session and prepare to engage in intense knowledge-sharing activities.
The lectures will explore G20 agenda, Korea’s economic development and its viable applications for G20 countries and developing countries. Calling upon participants to share their respective experiences, the lectures will include lessons from Korea’s development experience with growth strategy, trade and industrial policy, and human development, among others. Lectures will also address G20 agenda issues and action plans for realizing the G20 development goals. Topics that will be explored include how to overcome challenges to development amidst global changes in trade, energy, climate, financial regulatory systems, and technology landscapes.
The program also incorporates a three-day field study tour to other parts of Korea. In order to witness firsthand Korea’s development experiences, participants will be given an opportunity to visit key industrial and cultural sites.
Each participant will also be asked to prepare a Group discussion and Country Case presentation, addressing a G20
agenda issue or a development challenge in his/her country. The goal is to have each participant apply and incorporate the coursework and knowledge shared among peers in the program into his/her Country Case at the end of the program.
Each participant will be asked to submit a standard application form. Please refer to the application call for application deadlines and to submit online (or offline) application.
