For the past 30 years, KOTI has played a leading role in the timely construction and efficient operation of Korea's transport infrastructure. KOTI has also contributed to national economic development and people’s higher quality of life through innovation of the nation's transport and policies.
Transport is now required to play an even more vital role in enhancing quality of life and boosting economic growth.
