President SO, in his speech, said “Saemaul Undong(SMU) is constantly morphing itself to adjust to any given situation and time, and is still evolving. As the 21st Century unfolded with its new ethos emphasizing international development cooperation, SMU formed yet a new community, global SMU community around the world, and is contributing to the equality of global citizenry while trying to renovate the international development cooperation sector toward a sustainable human civilization.


Also, he added “The spirit of diligence, self-help, and cooperation is not something confined to SMU in Korea, but a universal virtue that will help mankind materialize its desire and equitable rights. So, SMU approach, based on the spirit of diligence, self-help, and cooperation, is a ‘new development paradigm’ that is applicable to any situation in the world even in the 21st Century.”
