Initially, a system of close government and business ties, including directed credit and import restrictions, made this achievement possible. The us government promoted the import of raw materials and technology on the expense of consumer goods, and prompted savings and investment above consumption. The Asian economic crisis of 1997-98 exposed longstanding weaknesses in South Korea's development unit including high debt/equity percentages and massive immediate foreign funding. GDP stepped by 6. 9% in 1998, and then retrieved by 9% in 1999-2000 Korea's foreign trade focused economic system was hit hard by 2008 global economic downturn, yet quickly rebounded in succeeding years, getting 6. 3% growth this year. The US-South Korea Totally free Trade Contract was ratified by both equally governments this summer and went into effect in March 2012. Throughout 2012 the economy experienced sluggish progress because of industry slowdowns in the United States, China, plus the Eurozone.
