More about South Korea

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in South Korea, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Economy

As an industrialized country, South Korea is a member of the G 20 and OECD. Since its economy developed dynamically, especially in the 1980s and 1990s, it was referred to as the “Little Tiger” along with Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong. The economy is oriented towards export (trade), the largest trading partner is China. The country has efficient seaports; one of the largest in East Asia is Busan. Check weddinginfashion to see Economy of Asia.

The most important branches in the industry include electronics and telecommunications, the automotive industry and shipbuilding. Large family-run corporations, called Chaebol (Jaebeol), have a strong position, including Samsung, Hyundai, Daewoo, LG and SK. They are active in many areas and used to be particularly subsidized by the state. Today they are mostly divided into several independent companies. There are also many small businesses that mainly produce for the domestic market. 25% of the employees work in production, they generate 36% of the national added value (gross domestic product, GDP). Overall, 70% of the workforce work in the service sector.

Less than a quarter of the area is used for agriculture. 5% of the workforce work there and generate 2% of GDP. Private small businesses predominate. But more and more large companies are emerging. The staple food rice is usually grown, but other grains such as potatoes and sweet potatoes are also grown. Fruit and vegetables as well as dairy farming have gained in importance. Kimchi, a type of sauerkraut made from Chinese cabbage, and fish, also fried and dried, are popular. The coastal waters, however, have been fished almost empty, so that the fishing fleet is switching to the oceans.

South Korea has few natural resources, including hard coal and some ores. Most of the oil and gas have to be imported. So far, four large nuclear power plants have also generated electricity. However, the government plans to gradually decommission the total of 24 reactor blocks. In 2030, renewable energies should cover a fifth of the electricity demand.

Popular tourist attractions are the capital Seoul with its historical palaces and parks, the capital Gyeongju of the old Korean empire Silla (1st century to 935 AD) with its nearby tumuli and Buddhist temples as well as the mountainous region in the northeast and the volcanic island of Jeju. It is also known as “South Korean Hawaii”.
