the shifting global environment, the prospect of international development cooperation
is also widening. The emergence of culture and trade as new issues of
international development cooperation is particularly observable.
there is a growing nexus between international development cooperation and
public diplomacy which indicates a country’s effort to influence foreign public
by sharing a country’s soft power such as culture, arts, and languages. An
increasing number of International volunteer programs serve as a key mechanism
of human exchange not only to contribute to socioeconomic development in
developing countries, but also to disseminate Korean language and Korean hallyu
-the K wave- to developing countries for enhanced national image.
Second, with the launch of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, aid
for trade has moved to the mainstream of international development. Trade is
emphasized as a driving engine to lead all three pillars of sustainable
development including the economic, social and environment aspects.
