Abstract

This report will show that, throughout the review period, South Korea has made progress in its transformation to a more liberal democracy and market-based economy which allows South Koreans freedom of choice in both political and economic matters. Starting from a favorable basis of 13 years of democratic rule, a developed economy and high levels of human development, the years between 2001 and 2005 have witnessed several reform measures that deepened the country’s economic and political transformation. The positive accomplishments of political transformation – such as a high degree of stateness, meaningful elections, the absence of undemocratic veto powers, stable democratic institutions and a vibrant civil society – have been preserved. The institutional framework of market economy and legislation to guarantee the basic rules of its organization is in place. Levels of socioeconomic development are high, while currency, prices and economic growth are stable. (The rest omitted)
