Subject: Labour news from Korea
A number of Korean computer communications organisations attending the Labor Media ’97 conference on 10-12 November in Seoul agreed to co-ordinate their efforts towards developing a Korean labournet which would link to labour web sites internationally and would relay labour news into and out of Korea.
One of the organisations involved, the International Politics f Economy Centre of Korea, has already started an English language news service called Korea Progressive News (http://ipeck.cpnet.or.kr/) which includes labour news.
Ipeck also translates international news material obtained from the Internet into Korean and distributes it as a five times a week bulletin.
