South Korea Tech

June 3rd, 2002 · No Comments

A WSJ article on South Korea using the World Cup to showcase its high-tech prowess mentions some impressive stats: “It surpassed Japan in producing computer memory chips in the late 1990s, and is now the world’s No. 1 producer. It is also the leading manufacturer of flat-panel display screens. A total of 54% of Korean households have broadband Internet access, compared with just 13% in the U.S. and 6.3% in Japan, according to the Ministry of Information and Communication. Its information-technology industry now accounts for more than a quarter of export volume.”
