In commemoration of the "Information and Communication Day", and in the hope that the convergence of scientific technologies, communication and broadcasting will serve the basis for the enhancement of happiness of the Korea nation, 4 commemorative stamps featuring wireless communication, postal communication, broadcasting communication, and scientific technologies/human/hope were issued by Korean post.
The rapid development of communication technology has dramatically changed the world. The "pony express" and "signal fire" have evolved into the postal system, telegraphic communication and telephone, computer, wired/wireless communication, and satellite communications, expanding our spheres of life to a remarkable extent. As shown by the Internet, created by the splendid imaginations of two persons to transform the world, as well as by the emergence of smart phones which became another new watershed, the combination of the power of human imagination with innovative technologies is leading mankind to a new progression day by day.
The meeting of imagination or creativity with technologies is creating economic wealth, which in turn is naturally enabling our lives to become more prosperous. The "creative economy", pursued by the new Korean government is being seen as transforming Korean economy's physical constitution into a creative economy. Specifically, the creative economy creates new values through convergence among different industries and between industries and culture, as well as based on the convergence between science technology and ICT (information and communication technology); creates new high-quality jobs; and ultimately strengthens the nation's growth potential.
