Minister’s Message

Welcome to the Ministry of
Science and ICT

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Ministry of Science and ICT.

We now face a global transformation called the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It is time to bring about a “genuine Fourth Industrial Revolution in which promising industries in the future lead to quality jobs.

To this end, the Ministry of Science and ICT will focus efforts on accelerating innovation across the whole society through building an environment that promotes autonomous and audacious research, securing source technologies and growth engines, and converging science and technology with ICT.

At the same time, the Ministry will endeavor to reform regulations and systems for new industries such as artificial intelligence and biotechnology, and to make mobile phone service available at a more affordable price so that anyone can enjoy the benefits of quality mobile communications. 

Above all, we will listen to voices from the field and do our best to implement policies that make positive changes in people’s lives.

We ask for your kind support. Thank you.

MI Overview
The new Ministerial Identity (MI) represents the essence of "Being Korean" through a harmonic representation of the blue, red and white of the Taegukgi and the judicious use of pure white space.
MI
Blue and red swirl together dynamically into a single Taeguk mark, representing the Korean government's commitment to building the future through the convergence of nation and people, Korea and the world, and the past and the present.
The traditional Korean motif and colors both maximize Korean aesthetic values while expressing the cultural refinement of the "Korea Premium.“
Signature
The new typeface is a modern interpretation of the early Hangul of the Hunminjeongeum, creating a natural balance with the Taeguk symbol and creating a strong, solid foundation to the MI.
Colors
The dedicated color scheme can be produced by both four-color and spot color printing depending on the nature of the medium.
