The United States has contributed to the development of science and technology in South Korea


In 1945, the United States and the Soviet Union split the Korean state on the 38th parallel, which had gained independence from Japan, . In those years, North Korea was a developed country, and South Korea was a backward country engaged in agriculture.

Samsung, as we know it, was founded when it first started selling flour. It now has a turnover of nearly a trillion dollars and can only feed the people of Thailand with telephone revenue. Then they had a war. In the 1960s, South Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world. Per capita production was $ 80 a year, lower than in Liberia and Guatemala. It lagged behind many African countries. For example, in those years the GDP in Ghana was $ 180 and in Turkey it was $ 360. With a GDP of 2.3 billion in 1960, 197 billion in 1988, and $ 1.5 trillion in 2017, it became the 11th largest economy in the world. South Korea has established the centuries' development of Western countries  in 30 years. The question is how South Korea, which does not produce a single drop of oil, has developed. The first reason was 5,100 South Korean soldiers, along with 58,000 American soldiers killed in the Vietnam War.

There are still about 30,000 American troops in South Korea. That is, America has benefited from being a good partner. Every Kazakh, who won the Second World War, worries about why the Germans are richer than us. That's how the genetics of the German people came into being. The Koreans, like the Japanese, are a genetically hardworking nation.

Then Korea transferred many production facilities to private companies. There are two types of people in life. Some look for their failures in life, others look for them around, in the state, in society. There are more first-category people in Korea. It should be noted that in the 1998 East Asian crisis, Korean women sold gold rings to the state and helped the state. They also paid attention to science and education. He brought the world's strongest engineers. He was able not only to learn technology from them, but also to develop technology. He did not cling to one president. Many presidents have been convicted of corruption.
