    Brief History of Korea

    Only several decades ago, Korea was a war-torn nation amid poverty and economic turmoil. The country had been devastated by the Korean War, with entire cities and infrastructure destroyed. With few resources, most people lived in extreme poverty and lacked access to primary education and healthcare services. The country’s transformation began in the late 1960s under the leadership of President Park Chung Hee. Realising that rapid economic growth was essential for recovery, Park aggressively pursued industrial development policies to attract foreign direct investment and build strategic infrastructure projects. This period became known as the “Miracle on Han River,” named after the river that flows through South Korea’s capital city, Seoul.

    The Park Government implemented robust export promotion strategies encouraging local companies to produce high-quality goods for international markets. They also introduced subsidies to stimulate technology exports, including semiconductors, electronics, chemicals, and ships. Such export-oriented strategies allowed South Korean companies to scale up their production capabilities while increasing efficiency rapidly. South Korea also invested heavily in education and human capital development initiatives during this period. High emphasis was placed on teaching English language skills so local businesses could better participate in global trade partnerships and improve access to advanced technologies from abroad.

    Structural reforms such as the deregulation of the finance sector and the construction of modern infrastructure developments (like ICT networks that connected whole regions) combined further to increase foreign investment opportunities in South Korea over time. Simultaneously, the government introduced market reforms that allowed for more economic competition by reducing barriers to entrepreneurial activities such as starting new businesses or expanding existing ones into global markets. It also gave citizens more freedom regarding ownership rights over their assets and allowed them to convert currencies across borders freely. Korea ultimately transformed itself from one of the world’s poorest countries into one of the most prosperous nations over a relatively short period of just four decades.
