The PCFIR deliberates upon and coordinates important policy matters pertaining to the development and acquisition of new science and technology, including artificial intelligence (AI) and data technology, as well as new industries and services necessary for Korean society’s adaptation to the 4th Industrial Revolution. The committee’s legal basis can be found in the Presidential Degree on the Creation and Management of the PCFIR, promulgated and effective as of August 22, 2017.
The PCFIR discussions and reviews matters pertaining to the following.
- National master plans and strategies related to the 4th Industrial Revolution;
- Executive plans and major policies of various ministries regarding the 4th Industrial Revolution;
- Measures to support the advancement of science & technology and the development & innovation of core technologies(AI, ICT, etc.) necessary for the 4th Industrial Revolution; and
- Measures to foster new industries and services created through the integration of intelligent technologies into existing industries.
The world today is undergoing a rapid transformation known as the 4th Industrial Revolution, through which countries are evolving into intelligent information-based societies. As the inevitable outcome of advancements in digital and information technologies, the 4th Industrial Revolution is transforming industries and changing our lives profoundly. Change can be difficult for anyone to manage, and revolutionary change is even more difficult. If Korea can adapt to and manage this industrial revolution based on strong leadership and vision, it will achieve a significant leap forward on the global stage.
Upon its establishment, the Presidential Committee on the Fourth Industrial Revolution(PCFIR) was given the historic mission of guiding the course of the revolution based upon deliberation on and coordination with the Korean government’s policy measures pertaining to it.
In addition to fulfilling the tasks that have been given to me, I will also do my best to remain attentive to both the big picture and specific policy steps based upon my own experience as well as public-private partnership. I will make sure that the PCFIR produces positive results by pursuing a grand vision and ensuring that even the smallest actions are carried out thoroughly.
I believe all policy and social changes should ultimately serve the people. That is the long-term vision that guides the PCFIR’s activities. As change necessarily involves pain and loss, we on the committee will strive to find measures to minimize such pain.
The PCFIR and its members will do their best to build social consensus on technological advancement, mobilize public and private resources, and help Korea achieve the desired innovation and growth. I ask you to continue supporting us with your attention and participation.
