   FKI held a dinner meeting in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Korea's accession to the OECD on October 24. The event, hosted by FKI Chairman Chang Soo Huh, was attended by 100-odd dignitaries, including directors of the OECD-Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC), ambassadors and business leaders.

   In his welcoming address, Chairman Huh pointed out, "Since we jointed the OECD, the scale of our economy has grown more than twice and exports have quadrupled. Today, however, we are faced with a business slump." "For the global economy to survive, it is imperative to create a favorable business environment in which businesses of the OECD members can focus on their own job. The commitment of the BIAC is crucial in this process," he asserted.
