Our Priority Research Topics

In march, 2005, the Board of Directors reviewed the community issues brought up by the steering committee, and set priorities of research and project development.

Because the tasks involved in each of the research topic are so complex and demanding huge amount of resources (personnel and money), the research committee have strategized to start with first two key issues that are most urgent and significant to the community.

  1. Problems with Korean-owned small businesses: High competition with poor success rate; need of transition from mom-and-pop stores to larger scale operations.
  2. Succession of community leadership and resources to the emerging generation.
