During the previous administration, Dr. Cho served as a vice-minister at the Prime Minister's office. He was involved in policy formulation with regards to Korea's green growth strategy and coordinated the policy dialogue among ministries.

He joined the Ministry in 1980, where he gained experience in project evaluation, industrial policy, and international trade policy. During the 1997 Asian Financial crisis, Dr. Cho was chosen by the President's office to formulate policies to overcome the crisis, which included corporate restructuring. After having served at the IMF, Dr. Cho returned to MOFE to assume the post of Director-General for Economic Policy until he joined the Prime Minister's office.
