Description
CYBER KOREA 21 refers to Korea’ s comprehensive plan to transform itself into a knowledge-based society where everyone can have easy access to the ever-shifting tide of information anywhere, anytime.

In the coming "knowledge-based society", where information and knowledge are the prime sources of added value, government, businesses, and individuals are called upon to join the information revolution so that they may freely acquire useful information, process it, and utilize it to their best advantage. To achieve this, CYBER KOREA 21 envisages soon building a nationwide ultra-high-speed information infrastructure in what amounts to an information superhighway of the knowledge-based society and, building on this momentum, pushing ahead with informatization throughout the government and private sector. Leveraging an advanced broadband telecommunications network and information technology will not only improve productivity and transparency across the government and society at large, but will also allow current industries to develop into knowledge-based industries. The unemployment problem should be resolved by fostering new industries, such as e-commerce, that effectively absorb downsized labor forces in society.

The CYBER KOREA 21 stamp features a design, created by Chun Sang-hun, that was selected as the best design in the 2000 International Postage Stamp Design Contest. It symbolizes the number 2000 with a telephone mouthpiece, a CD, the @ symbol, and a mouse. Let us dream of a future where Korea is one of the world’ s most computer-literate countries, with our children playing leading roles in a "nowledge-based society".
