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.


Open and transparent government in Korea

Based primarily on the Government 3.0 paradigm and objectives established by the Korean government in 2013, this chapter provides a set of indicators on the level of openness and transparency of the Korean government. The analysis included in this chapter focuses on the evolution of perceived corruption in government by age group and compared to the private sector, on the existing mechanisms to combat potential conflicts of interest and foster integrity in the Korean government, on the existing channels for citizen participation throughout the policy making cycle, and on the quality and uptake of digital government services and open government data.
