The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development.

Abstract

Half a century ago during the 1960s, smuggling was one of the Five Social Evils of Korea and the public perceived the customs to be one of the most corrupt government practices. Customs processes and management were slow and inefficient. Statistics was not only inaccurate but also poorly managed because its importance was negated. Importers could easily smuggle goods, taking illegal advantage of the incomplete customs surveillance. Illegal activities were difficult to detect or prevent. Documents were easily lost and smuggling acts could not be properly persecuted due to a lack of evidence or legality of evidences.
Fifty years later, in the present, Korea’s international trade practices improved miraculously. Trade has become the most important component of the Korean economy. Korea’s economic dependence on trade, measured in terms of its GDP, is expected to account for almost 80% in 2012. The trade volume increased 195 times from 2.8 billion USD to 545.7 billion USD in the year 1970 and 2005 respectively. (The rest omitted)
