Message from the President

Welcome to LG Economic Research Institute Online.

  • The world is changing rapidly. Every day we face a different economic and business environment, and businesses are constantly presented with new challenges. Only those that successfully anticipate and respond to the oncoming challenges continue to survive and grow.

    The same applies to our broader society. A society that fails to recognize the direction the world is headed will inevitably face a crisis. And such threat is growing bigger as the world is entering a new era of connectivity, artificial intelligence, energy solutions and bio innovation.

  • As the think tank of LG Group, LG Economic Research Institute continuously seeks to be the first and most accurate in understanding the changes and their underlying drivers to deliver the best solutions. In addition, we will continue to share the fruits of our efforts with the Korean society.

    We seek to conduct research that provides the most value and contributes to the success of Korean businesses in the global competition as well as to the prosperity of members of the Korean society.

    We sincerely ask for your continued interest and commentary.
    Thank you.

President, LG Economic Research Institute
