Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea has transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights and lessons and knowledge that can be shared with the rest of the international community. Recognizing this, the Korean Ministry of Strategy and Finance

Abstract

This paper provides overview of South Korea’s government procurement (GP) experience in the context of its fast economic development. Public procurement in considered to be one of the major factors that contributed to its economic success, making Korea a suitable benchmark case. In this respect, this paper hopes to provide inspiration and platform to share Korea’s procurement experience with other (not only) developing countries facing similar difficulties that Korea did in their public procurement on the way towards economic advancement.
Literature provides many definitions of GP. In general, GP can be seen as a formal process of purchasing goods and services for government agencies. The principal objective of GP is to acquire goods and services under the most advantageous conditions. This can mean either low price or the best quality, or their combinations. GP also pursues a number of secondary goals such as promotion of selected economic operators or industries, protection of domestic market, social policy enforcement, etc. (The rest omitted)
