UNCTAD Explainer - Information and Communication Technology for Development
 
03:01
Information and communications technologies (ICTs) offer increased potential for advancing progress towards economic and social development objectives. The worldwide spread of mobile telephony and communication systems, the growth of Internet networks and widespread use of broadband infrastructure have an impact on international production and trade. But benefits from new ICTs cannot be taken for granted. Making ICT work for development requires more than expanding access to affordable infrastructure. In order to foster productive and inclusive use of ICTs, Governments need to create legal, institutional and policy frameworks and generate the necessary skills in government, business and civil society. UNCTAD assists governments of developing and transition economies towards their increased participation in the information economy. UNCTAD is also working closely with various parts of the UN and other relevant international institutions. Drawing on its policy research, UNCTAD monitors trends related to the “digital divide”, and advises countries on how to design and implement ICT strategies and policies to better participate in the global information economy.

2011 Trends and Expectations—A Commentary on Korean Global Business
 
05:09
FULL REPORT Annually in an executive-level commentary, I share thoughts for the upcoming year. Looking back at 2010, North Korean saber rattling took on new meaning with several overt military confrontations against South Korea. Meanwhile, South Korea's economy saw little sign of a double dip recession, which had worried some experts going into 2010, instead we saw continued growth in Korea's global brands. This was further strengthened by the G-20 Summit that showcased, among others, Korean technology leaders Samsung, Hyundai-Kia Motors, and LG. Related to U.S. and South Korea relations and following an amended agreement for the Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, we should soon see the treaty ratified by Congress. Advocates see the FTA boosting annual commerce between the two nations into the billions of Dollars. Looking forward to 2011, North Korea will continue to be a concern. Issues include the Kim regime's succession plans, threats of more border clashes, and an unchecked nuclear arms program. Hoping to address these concerns, we'll see strong outside diplomatic and political pressure for renewed 6 Way Talks, and to quell future border confrontations. I'll continue to monitor and share news as it unfolds. Even in a worst-case scenario, Korean global business and local economy would bounce back and move forward, especially since much manufacturing is now done overseas. Next, The stellar trade performance has enabled Korea to enjoy one of the fastest recoveries among OECD countries. Private consumption will continue its robust recovery, growing 4.1% in 2010. With strong exports and facilities investment, bullish stock markets, and low interest rate policy households will continue to enjoy increased income, improved wealth effect, and a reduced burden of servicing debt that will increase household purchasing power. Building on the momentum of the past 2 years, expect Korea's export-driven firms to push their organizations to carve out even greater market shares. Look for bold announcements and sales targets such as #1 in global sales or production vs. the older "Top 10" or "Top 5" quest. In this effort, expect top Korean firms to expand their organization through M&A. For some, this breaks from a tradition of building and growing from within vs. acquisitions. Additionally, as I noted last year, expect more foreign firms to aggressively target South Korea as a top emerging market. In other words, with Korea performing well many global firms and brands once focused on North American or European business partnerships will now seek out Korean opportunities. This will unfold with global businesses looking to launch new product lines (and brands) in Korea, as well as leading international firms offering their services to Korea's top companies. For foreign businesses entering the Korean market or partnering with Korean firms, I suggest they take efforts to understand not only the culture, but also business norms and expectations. For example, your key management needs access to coaching and someone to answer their questions on topics ranging from strategy to the impact of routine management changes within their Korean partner's organization. It's a small upfront investment and less costly than the consequences, which can include lawsuits, local and expat employee turnover, and months of missed goals and low productivity--not to mention tensions between you and the client over expectations. Finally, expect further growth in Green technology (wind power, solar, and eCars) and government-led initiatives like "Work Smart." With regard to Green, most of Korea's major Groups have boldly entered the renewable and sustainable market and plan to expand sales globally. This includes state of the art manufacturing facilities for wind turbines, solar cells, next generation batteries, and electric power trains. In the shift to these new technologies, forward-thinking firms are moving towards a creativity-centered organizational and workplace culture. On one level, "Work smart" was introduced in Korea to address the quality of life issues raised by its traditional long working hours. According to a Samsung Economic Research Institute report, "Work smart" will spread in 2011, and has a goal to increase productivity and creativity. Work smart includes not only eliminating unnecessary busy work, but grants autonomy in choosing working hours and gives teams the "work from home" option. To conclude, understanding the dynamics of Korea's economy, markets, and major business groups is vital. It is critical to take into consideration Korea's past and current trends. Culture, global influences, cyber-communication, and a 24-hour workday add to this complexity. Bridging Culture Worldwide is dedicated to providing much needed research, analysis, and critical thinking to provide you with answers and insights 24-7-365. 1-310-866-3777

Extractive Industries in LATAM: Foreign Investment and Extractive Industries in Latin America
 
58:01
For more on this event, visit: http://bit.ly/2zBkQ3d For more on the Georgetown Latin America Initiative: https://latinamerica.georgetown.edu October 27, 2017 | Extractive industries are essential components of the economies of many countries in the region. When projects are well implemented, preserve the rights of affected people and its benefits are well managed, extractive industries can contribute to sustainable development and economic opportunities. However, the impact of extractive industries can also represent a serious challenge to the people impacted negatively by their activities. In recent decades, the importance of extractives industries in Latin America and the Caribbean has increased, with countries seeking to provide a stable investment climate, diminishing legal and regulatory framework, and limiting taxes on private companies. This has accelerated rates of economic growth but it has also been accompanied by significant levels of corruption, social conflict and environmental damage, in some cases undermining democracy and the human rights of many people in the region. How can extractive industries and government regulation balance local expectations with national development plans and calibrate industry regulations and investment promotion? How can stakeholders (policymakers at all levels, civil society, multinational corporations) maximize the benefits of extracting resources, while minimizing the risks of corruption, resource-curse ills, violation of human rights and environmental degradation? How can a favorable investment/business environment be created without sacrificing long term national interests, or jeopardizing local goals and rights? This conference, organized by the different Latin American students’ organizations at Georgetown University and sponsored by Georgetown University’s Latin American Initiative, aims to bring together researchers, practitioners and community leaders from throughout the region that can help us think through this difficult yet poignant questions. Hence, taking the lead from the Latin American Studies Association’s call for a “dialogues of knowledge”, the conference aims to include the voices of indigenous, afro-descendants and other popular sectors in the discussion.
