Event Description

South Korea was one of the first countries hit by COVID-19, but a swift policy response by the government allowed Korea to contain the virus relatively well and avoid the types of lockdowns that have significantly impacted other countries’ economies. However, prior to COVID-19 the economy faced challenges from population aging, low productivity, and inclusive growth.

Please join us for a discussion of the OECD’s 2020 Economic Survey of Korea, how the Korean economy is weathering COVID-19, and how COVID-19 will impact Korea’s longer term efforts to address issues related to population aging, low productivity, and inclusive growth.
