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.



Government performance and the health and long term care system in Korea

This chapter reviews the performance of the health and long-term care system in Korea. After reviewing the remarkable progress achieved in recent decades in increasing the life expectancy of the Korean population, the chapter presents some persisting challenges to further improve access to and the efficiency of the health care system in Korea. Two specific sections are also included on prevention policies and long-term care, due to their particular relevance in the current Korean context to promote healthy ageing and respond to the needs of a rapidly ageing population.
