The next government's approach to ICT policy

When the government of President Lee Myung Bak came to power in 2008, it surprised many people with a reorganization of ministries that included elimination of the powerful Ministry of Information and Communication, which had served as a "control tower," actively coordinating Korea's telecommunications policies.  That reorganization did not sit well with many, both inside and outside the ICT sector.  Now, with a presidential election approaching in December of this year, there is considerable discussion of what the new government will do to coordinate ICT policy.   Earlier this month, the National Information Society Agency hosted a conference on the topic, a summary of which is reported in the Korea IT Times.
