Government at a Glance: How Korea Compares

image of 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.


Administrative burden and regulatory governance in Korea

This chapter provides a data-driven overview of regulatory policies in Korea. It starts by providing a set of indicators on the level of administrative and regulatory burden as perceived by businesses and experts in the country. It then continues with an assessment of regulatory practices and procedures used by the Korean government and other OECD countries to design and review regulations. In particular, it focuses on the extent to which stakeholder consultations, regulatory impact analysis and ex post evaluations are carried out to inform regulatory reforms throughout the full policy-making cycle.
