Country Brief - South Korea 2017

South Korea is a high-income country with a very highly-educated population. An economy based on rapid industrial transformation and manufacturing exports, it is now seeking to make the transition to a more consumption-based, creative and knowledge economy. It also faces the challenge of an ageing population and needs to harness the talents of its workforce more effectively, by raising female participation, boosting currently low productivity in services and small and medium-sized businesses and increasing the span of working lifetimes through both getting young people into employment more quickly after graduation and raising the age of retirement.
