Abstract

This research examined empirically the patterning of sustainable development of South Korea and Thailand. For the empirical verification forty indicators were selected drawing upon the conceptual components of sustainable development and they were applied to diverse statistical assessment. The research findings pointed to three facts. Firstly, the indicators held considerably high explanatory power for identifying sustainable development structure of both Korea and Thailand. Secondly, the relative importance of individual indicator and category was significantly different between the two countries whereas the relative importance of dimensions showed the same pattern in that the environment was most important determining the state of sustainable development, which is followed by the social and the economy. Thirdly, during the 10 years period between 1994 and 2003, sustainable development had been shaped with a significant interaction among the environmental, the social and the economic factors in Korea and Thailand alike.
