KDI is an autonomous policy-oriented research organization established by the Government of Korea as an economic think tank to provide a rigorous academic perspective on the various economic policy issues that arose during Korea's rapid growth and development in the 1960s. Since then, the scope of KDI's activities has grown, and it is now called upon to provide expert analysis and advice on all aspects of long- and short-term government policies in areas ranging from domestic economic policy to international trade and investment.
