The Republic of Korea also entered the list of members of the OECD, an international economic organization of developed countries that recognize the principles of representative democracy and free market economy.
“Korea has no resources, 70% of its territory is covered by mountains, and on three sides it is surrounded by the sea. We have survived decades of colonialism and civil war, devastation and poverty. In those years, our people dreamed of living at least one day without hunger. They did not give up, they prayed for the next generations and worked so that their descendants would not have to experience all these. Korea now ranks fifth in the world in automotive and steel production, third in industrial complex construction, first in shipbuilding, first in the world in high-speed internet quality, and number one smartphone supplier. Our main resource is people,” – he said. At the same time, the lecturer noted the great potential of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the conditions of the declared reforms of the President K.K.
