Through 20 weeks of persistent and peaceful demonstrations, South Koreans called for their former president's impeachment which resulted in a special presidential election in May. Moon Jae-in, a candidate from a progressive party, was elected and took over the Blue House immediately.
Kim Jin-pyo who served as Chairman of the State Affairs Planning Advisory Committee under President Moon during the transition period will discuss the new administration's socio-economic policies on major topics including job creation, income growth, and a fair economy.
Kim, a National Assembly Member for a fourth term, served as Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Education and Human Resources Development (2005-06); Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Finance and Economy (2003-04); vice chairman of the transition committee under President Roh Moo-hyun; and Senior Secretary of Policy and Planning to President Kim Dae-jung in 2002.
Kim received a BA in law from Seoul National University and an MA in public administration from University of Wisconsin.
This event is open to the public and reservations are not required.
