Since its establishment, the KSP has grown in size and complexity, and has become a main channel for Korea’s knowledge sharing activities. In collaboration with MOSF, the KSP has three pillars as of 2012: KDI leading Policy Consultation (Bilateral KSP), the Export-Import Bank of Korea (Korea EXIMBank) leading the Joint Consulting with International Organizations (Multilateral KSP) and the System Consulting, and KDI School leading Modularization.

KSP Philosophy
Policy Consultation – Bilateral KSP Korea Development Institute (KDI), since its establishment in 1971, has been recognized as a leading think tank of Korea significantly contributing to the economic and social development of Korea.

For over three decades, KDI has consistently provided policy recommendations and guidance based on in-depth analyses of international and domestic economic conditions and projections while conducting preemptive and empirical studies. While recognizing the importance of finding new growth engines for prompt economic recovery and sustainability during the trying times of the global economic crisis, KDI is working diligently to put forth applicable policy directions based on comprehensive studies. By enhancing its research capacity and cooperative studies internationally, KDI will achieve world-class excellence in its research, formulate preemptive and applicable economic policies, and at the same time strengthen comprehensive academic studies. In parallel with research, KDI will endeavor to continually disseminate information on pending issues of economic policy to economic agents.

Joint Consulting with Interational Organizations(IOs)-Multilateral KSP The Export-Import Bank of Korea (Korea Eximbank) is an official export credit agency providing comprehensive export credit and guarantee programs to support Korean enterprises in conducting overseas business.

Since its establishment in 1976, the bank has actively supported Korea's export-led economy and facilitated economic cooperation with foreign countries. Korea Eximbank's primary services include export loans, trade finance, and guarantee programs structured to meet the needs of clients in a direct effort to both complement and strengthen the clients' competitiveness in global markets. The bank also provides overseas investment credit, natural resources development credit, import credit, and information services related to business opportunities abroad.
Furthermore, the bank is responsible for the operation of two government funds: the Economic Development Cooperation Fund (EDCF), a Korean Official Development Assistance program, and the Inter-Korean Cooperation Fund (IKCF), an economic cooperation program with North Korea. The bank strives to become "The Global Financial Partner Connecting Korea to the World" as reflected in its vision by continuously fostering innovation and development throughout its operations.

Modularization of Korea’s development experience The KDI School of Public Policy and Management opened in March 1998 with the mission of fostering global leaders in the public and private sectors at home and abroad. Since then the KDI School has achieved remarkable growth with our inaugural group of 55 students increasing to about 300 in 2011.

The quality of our educational programs and faculty now rivals other internationally renowned institutions, and our alumni play active roles in diverse sectors including government, public agencies, finance, media, other enterprises, and international organizations.

The KDI School, by securing a faculty pool with outstanding policy research records, strives to create a rich and interdisciplinary curriculum which combines state-of-the-art theories and the practices of policymaking and implementation. Moreover, our student body with diverse professional and cultural backgrounds provides an open educational environment which leads to a well-connected global alumni network spanning 101 countries. This allows our students to nurture international perspectives and acquire relevant skills for global leadership. The KDI School also enjoys extensive partnerships with distinguished universities and research institutes around the world for student exchange and other academic programs.
 Furthermore, the KDI School aims to solidify Korea’s global leadership in the development field by furthering the Seoul Development Consensus for Shared Growth endorsed at the Seoul G20 Summit. Accumulated policy research and development consulting experience at KDI over the last four decades are valuable assets for the KDI School striving to become a world-class academic institution for development policy studies. We will channel our best efforts in nurturing growth potential and ensuring resilience in developing countries.
 The KDI School of Public Policy and Management remains committed to transforming our students into global leaders with a broad perspective and the capacity of successfully tackling pressing issues in international politics and global economy in a balanced manner between advanced and developing countries.
