Session 2. 16:00-17:30. Korea’s Experience and Europe.
The Asian Financial Crisis of 1998 pushed Korea toward the digital age much earlier, faster, and deeper than any other country in the world. Far from creating a decline, this huge shock has induced Korean cultural industries to innovate and to prosper, while spurring a huge interest around the world for its culture. The Korean experience offers to Europe a rich source of inspiration in which it can overcome its own challenges.
