The essential guide to IT transformation

A bevy of senior officials met with the top five chaebols (conglomerates) yesterday in a bid to push through the reforms that the South Korean government had promised the International Monetary Fund (IMF). But the focus of the meeting between finance minister Lee Kyu-sung and the commissioner of South Korea's fair trade arbitrator, was Hyundai and LG. Reports in The Korea Times said that both the government and the banks were pushing Hyundai and LG to settle on a third party sooner rather than later.
