Software engineering, 2002. Although the Korean economy has grown rapidly in recent years, while appearing to maintain sound macroeconomic fundamentals, it experienced a foreign exchange crisis at the end of 1997 in the wake of severe financial turbulence in several South-East Asian economies. Faced with the threat of a default on its external debt, Korea received a $57 billion rescue package led by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at the beginning of December 2001.
Korea What distinguishing factors help explain the rapid economic growth experienced by the South Korean economy over the past four decades? As the South Korean economy has reached a more mature stage of its economic growth, what are the evolving challenges it has had to face? What are its prospects of continued economic success in the increasingly globalized world economy? The rapid growth and ...
Despite this package, the exchange rate continued to decline, while interest rates doubled to 30 per cent by the end of the year. Although financial markets have stabilized somewhat since the beginning of the year and some of the exchange-rate overshooting has been reversed, the impact of the crisis is now being felt in the real economy. Given the loss of purchasing power and the restrictive macroeconomic policies in place, total domestic demand is projected to drop by almost 10 per cent in 2002, while inflation accelerates. Despite a large increase in net exports, total output may decline slightly. With domestic demand expected to stabilize in 2003, economic growth is likely to resume, though at well below past rates. These developments are likely to result in a substantial current account surplus both this year and next. (Creed) The government has taken a number of steps intended to open capital markets, restructure the financial system and strengthen prudential supervision, increase labour market flexibility and encourage corporate restructuring.
Additional steps to improve corporate governance practices and further open the product market are planned. Rapid and effective implementation of these measures should help to boost confidence in the Korean economy, laying the groundwork for a recovery of the exchange rate and a decline in interest rates to more normal levels. Despite the substantial costs to the budget of bank re-structuring, there also appears to be some scope for fiscal policy to play a role in counterbalancing the negative impact of the crisis. (Creed) The economy is expected to contract slightly in 2003, reflecting a sharp decline in domestic demand, particularly investment. The business sector is likely to scale back its investment plans in reaction to extraordinarily high borrowing costs, excess capacity and balance-sheet problems. In addition, firms will attempt to limit labour costs by reducing total wages, notably through cuts in bonus and overtime payments, which account for a third of employee compensation. Employment is also projected to decline, with the unemployment rate more than doubling to around 5 1/2 per cent in 2003.
Household disposable income will be further eroded by an acceleration of consumer prices to double-digit levels, making a sharp contraction in private consumption likely despite a fall in the saving rate. However, the collapse of domestic demand should be largely offset by a massive positive swing in the foreign balance. A significant decline in imports is projected, while the competitiveness gains of Korean firms should enable them to boost exports despite the economic crisis in South-East Asia. Consequently, at current exchange rates the current account surplus may be as large as $15 billion (5 per cent of GDP) in 2003. (Report 2002) SK Telecom is Koreas leading provider of information and communications services spanning Mobile Services, E-Commerce, Overseas Operations and Subsidiaries. SK Telecoms SPEED 011, Koreas leading cellular service brand, Nate wireless Internet service and multimedia service, which offers VOD (Video On Demand) and AOD (Audio On Demand) for CDMA 2000 mobile phone users, are providing unrestricted access to communication anytime, and anyplace.
Samsung, one of the leading brands around the world. It sells wide range of electronic appliances and technology such as television, personal computer and mobile phone. It accounted for more than 220,000 employees across the globe with it headquartered in Seoul, South Korea (Datamonitor360). Byung-Chull Lee started his business from selling dried Korean fish with 30,000 won in 1938 under the name ...
SK Telecom already has established a presence in China, Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia. The company, which has extensive experience and technology related to first-generation analogue and second-generation CDMA wireless communications, is leading the race to develop the third-generation IMT-2000 system and services. (Creed) Currently Korea produces as much as 90% of all mobile phones components made domestically. This gives the industry an opportunity to overcome the worlds leading mobile producers. In a move that signals Koreas intention to continue moving up the value added electronics food chain, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. said it has developed cell phone chipsets to supply local cellular hardware manufacturers.
Samsung said it has completed development of a Mobile Station Modem or MSM , Base Band Analog Processor or BBA and general-use operating system software for cellular handsets. The MSM and BBA are highly-integrated devices that control the function of cellular handsets. Samsung said it has also completed development of its own frequency synthesizers and high-frequency (RFIC) chipsets, completing the localization of at least 90 percent of the parts and components used in wireless handsets. Korean-produced cell phone chips will save Korean OEMs about $2 billion in import costs by 2003, Samsung said. With the development of the critical mobile handset chips and the company’s advanced memory technology, Samsung Electronics plans to ship by the second half of 1999, a System-On-Chip with a MSM chip that includes FLASH/SRAM memories and speech codec and MSM and BBA chips, next generation IMT-2000 chips, that makes possible 153.6Kbps data transmission and are also compatible with the IS-95C standard. Until the announcement of the first Korean source of the cell phone chipsets, these critical components have mostly been imported from Qualcomm in the United States and other non-Korea sources, Samsung said. Imports of cell phone chips have been increased to about $1 billion with the expansion of the CDMA market, Samsung said.
Korea then adopted 3G Networks soon after and the transition was made as early as 2004. 2. 5G" (and even 2. 75G) are technologies such as i-mode data services, camera phones, high-speed circuit-switched data (HSCSD) and General packet radio service (GPRS) that provide some functionality domains like 3G networks, but without the full transition to 3G network. They were built to introduce the ...
(Stephenson) Samsung said it has invested around two years and some twenty-seven billion Korean Wan to develop the new chips and has filed for 25 domestic and foreign patents related to the hardware and methods for activating the acoustic echo canceler function for improving voice quality when using a hands-free kit. The new SCom3000 chip is used in conjunction with the real-time pSOS general-use operating system software to facilitate the addition of multimedia functions such as web browser and e-mail to a new generation of cell phones. A specific signal-processing algorithm has been built in to improve call quality by eliminating acoustic noise. In addition, an 8K Enhanced Variable Rate Codec (EVRC) that is usable with CDMA handsets is also provided to offer clear communications. The BBA chip transfers data between the wireless RF components and the MSM. To date, only Sony and Qualcomm have been offering such devices.
The BBA chip operates on just 200 milliamperes, helping to increase call time and standby time and is available in four different package types to accommodate manufacturers drive to build smaller and lighter handsets. (Stephenson) A new Korean agency launched by the Ministry of Information and Communication last week will try to persuade Asian mobile phone companies to convert from GSM to code division multiple access (CDMA) technology. The International Cooperation Agency for Korea Mobile (ICA) will ultimately be focused on increasing exports of Korean mobile phone network and handset technology. The ministry said the ICA would conduct market surveys, formulate strategies for overseas expansion, assist small Korean mobile companies, publish e-catalogs, and operate cyber exhibition halls. But one of its stated aims is to establish a network of CDMA enabled countries and work to convert foreign companies using the Nordic mobile telecom formula to CDMA, according to a ministry statement. Regional telecommunications analyst Paul Budde told Newsbytes that Koreas interest in CDMA dates back to the mid-1990s. Korean companies like Samsung made very lucrative deals with Qualcomm [NASDAQ:QCOM] in the mid-1990s allowing them to use their inventions, patents, etc.
