Message from the President

Welcome to the Korea Foundation website.

Since its establishment in 1991, the Korea Foundation has implemented a variety of public diplomacy activities - through culture and arts exchange, support for Korean studies abroad, global networking, and media programs - to help people around the world enhance their understanding about Korea and willingly become friends of Korea.

As a lead public diplomacy organization in Korea, the Korea Foundation will expand programs to share the dynamic aspects of Korea with people around the world and to contribute to the international community. The Foundation will make the most of its experience and strengths accumulated over the past 25 years and will creatively develop distinct and specialized programs to meet the demand of the times and changes in environment. In addition, the Foundation will carry out participatory public diplomacy programs to consolidate Koreans' capability in international exchange activities.

I look forward to your interest in and support for the Korea Foundation and its endeavors.

Thank you very much.

Sihyung Lee
