S. Korean consul describes nanotechnology plans

from the World-Watch dept.
In an interview with United Press International ("South Korean consular describes tech trends", by K. Hearn, 9 June 2001), Sangseon Kim, science consular at the South Korean embassy in Washington, D.C., describes his countryís intent to invest 1.5 trillion won ($1.13 billion) in a ten-year nanotechnology investment program. When asked what he thought of the idea of an international body to steer research and applications of nanotechnology similar to the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative, Kim said, "I think that is a good idea. If you image the Human Genome Project, how it involved international cooperation, you see it is a good model. The United States can be a leading country in this field but one country can't cover all areas. International cooperation is important to prove and promote R&D activities.î
