Korea to establish ‘Green Technology Center’ to speed up green growth

South Korea will establish a new think tank that oversees the country’s “green growth” drive aimed at seeking economic growth by boosting environment-friendly technologies and industries, a presidential committee said Thursday.

The “Green Technology Center,” set to launch in March, will coordinate and support green growth policies of related ministries and agencies and help boost cooperation between research centers home and abroad, the Presidential Committee on Green Growth said. The committee was to report the center’s establishment to President Lee Myung-bak on Thursday.

A task force comprising the top researchers at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and the Korea Institute of Energy Research has been working on the establishment, it said.
