Abstract

This paper has been derived from the Consultative Program for the Fifth Five-Year Plan (1982-1986) of the Republic of Korea, organized and financed by the Government of Korea, the World Bank, and the United Nations Development Program in 1980/81. The paper aims at providing a sound basis for human resources planning for the 1980s during which the Korean economy will have to undergo far-reaching structural changes. It starts with an analysis of labor market problems with special reference to the demand for, and supply of, technical and skilled workers. The paper then focuses on ways of facilitating institutional linkages between formal education and vocational training, the two major sources of technical manpower, effective use of trained manpower, and the means of improving the national vocational training system. The Korean system is compared with other systems, especially those adopted in many countries in Latin America.
