Government at a Glance: How Korea Compares
This report provides a series of indicators on Korea's policymaking practices and
government performance compared to those of other OECD countries and of the G7 countries.
Based on the Korean government reform objectives, this publication discusses how to
strengthen evidence-based policymaking in the Korean public administration and, more
generally, how to improve public service delivery and results for more inclusive growth.
Although Korea is currently in an enviable fiscal situation compared to other OECD
and G7 countries, the growing old-age-dependency ratio will inevitably increase budget
pressures in the coming years. Concrete actions are therefore needed now to promote
greater efficiency and value for money in public spending and public service delivery.
