초록

Since its establishment in 1978, the Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements (KRIHS) is pleased to have been part of contributing to the establishment of policies involved in the development of national land sectors. This includes our involvement in the areas of national and regional land development planning, conservation and management of the national environment, land and housing policies, the planning of urban policies, supporting the construction industry, supplying of the national infrastructure, building spatial information system, etc. In particular, the company has been dedicated to supporting the development of national policies that improve and support competitiveness in the development of our national lands, and which will also make people’s lives more prosperous in the long run.
In 2012, KRIHS focused on research which supported key governmental policies such as the establishment and nourishing of a fair and equal society, the improvement of national land class, and dealing with policy demands in national land sectors. We tried to do this in a proactive manner. Furthermore, KRIHS has promoted customized educational business seminars to help deliver successful Korean land development models to other developing countries. It has also responded to the increasing demands for ‘Korean benchmarking’ regarding national land development, and strengthened the foundation for overseas business projects. All of these have contributed to improving the status of Korea.
