What is the Global HR Forum?

As our global communities are facing new crises and challenges, developing more competitive and creative human talents has become a very significant issue for all countries. Since human resources are the foundation where the prosperity of individuals, industries, society, and the world is built upon, the governments, businesses, and educational institutions must join efforts to improve education, training, and utilization of human resources. In response, the Korean Ministry of Education, Korean Economic Daily, and Korea Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training recognized the needs for international cooperation and collaboration, and thus initiated the Global HR Forum since 2006.
