Abstract

Korea is one of the largest markets for environmental products and technology in the Asia-Pacific region, with a total size of approximately $7.1 billion in 1999.1 In the 1990s, Korea’s environmental market grew at an annual average of around 16 percent, until 1997, when the financial and economic crisis hit the nation hard. In 1999, the market regained its growth as the national economy bounced back from the economic downturn, and it is expected to reach $7.7 billion in 2000. Government spending on environmental investment and management totaled $3.9 billion in 1999, up approximately 7 percent from $3.7 billion in 1998, as the government continued to increase investment in environmental infrastructure, including sewage systems and solid waste treatment facilities.
