In 2009, Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) launched "Visiting Fellows Program (VFP)" with the view of advancing cross-border exchanges of knowledge, information, insights and expertise.
Since its inception, the VFP has demonstrated that sharing thoughts and ideas through face-to-face contacts and dialogue works as a catalyst for enhancing mutual understanding among scholars and professionals with diverse background.
By successfully implementing the VFP for the past 8 years, KIEP has been motivated to assume the role as a hub for international economic research in the region. As a host of the program, KIEP has many mandates. One of those tasks is to let more people know what has been accomplished through the program and how valuable it is.
In an effort to do so, KIEP has published series of research every year. This volume, the 7th of its series, contains eight research papers contributed by 2015 Visiting Fellows.
Publication owes many debts. Here I acknowledge just a few of them. First of all, I must express my deepest gratitude to the 2015 visiting fellows for their outstanding performances. My special thanks also goes to Ms. RIM Jeewoon and the staffs of the KIEP Publishing Team who worked very hard for the publication of this volume.
