Korea - Current economic position and prospects (English)

This report provides a review of economic position and prospects of Korea as of 1968. An integrated transportation survey was carried out in Korea from November 1965 to June 1966. It included the entire country and all modes of transport. Its primary function was to recommend a detailed transportation investment program for the Second Five Year Plan 1967-1971 (SFYP). According to the objectives established for the progress of the economy during the SFYP by Korea's central planning agency, the Economic Planning Board(EPB), the survey was based on the assumption of a Gross national product (GNP) growth rate of 7 percent. The investment program recommended by the Korea Transportation Mission has been partly adopted by the government.
