Export-led Policy and Building Development-Friendly Environment During the 1960s
• Introduction

Knowledge sharing for sustainable development and global prosperity is one of the key motivations behind establishing the KDI School of Public Policy and Management. The KDI School understands the valuable role the GDLN can play as an effective tool for knowledge sharing and learning. As part of the designated GDLN Korean Center's knowledge exchange initiatives, the KDI School is launching blended learning programs that focus on Korea's successful development experiences. 

Transitioning from an aid recipient to an OECD-DAC donor, Korea has achieved remarkable economic growth, democratization and social stability in less than half a century. With Korea's extraordinary development widely acknowledged and documented, Korea is in a unique position to share its experiences with emerging and developing countries as a means of furthering global development. 

This course will be an opportunity for participants to stimulate critical thinking about development experience and to reflect on their respective economies as well.

• Learninig Objective

Korea has emerged from one of the poorest agrarian economies into an industrialized country, mainly through an export-based industrialization strategy, which initiated in the early 1960s. This lecture introduces historical backgrounds of the export-led growth strategies in Korea, major policy instruments for export promotion in 1960s, key factors for the Korean success, and some policy implications for developing countries. This lecture puts special emphasis on policy consistency with strong political leadership, coherent economic bureaucracy, timely provision of infrastructure, extreme social mobility with intense enthusiasm for education attainment, and favorable world economic environment, as key success factors for the Korean export-led industrialization.
