# Park Byungho President

Welcome to the website of the Local Government Officials Development Institute under the Ministry of the Interior and Safety in the Republic of Korea.

Since its establishment in 1965, LOGODI has been contributing to the development of local administration through the strengthening of local government officials’ capacities.

With our vision of “fostering local government officials who lead government innovation and decentralization,” LOGODI is sharing and spreading Korea’s national policy agenda, such as local autonomy, balanced development, and governance philosophy, in its domestic programs.

We are also striving to implement future-oriented training in preparation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, with focus on big data, AI, IOT, and other areas.

Since 2000, LOGODI has shared Korea’s development experience with 4,763 officials from 88 countries through 166 international programs, which are customized to country-specific needs in such areas as local governance, government innovation, regional development, and HRD.

We will make a comprehensive effort to solidify our global network of alumni and broaden our win-win international partnerships with training institutions overseas.

Moving forward, LOGODI will faithfully carry its role and responsibility to foster leaders of local governments.

Thank you for your continued interest and support.
