Last year, Korea’s growth rate ranked third out of 15 countries.
According to statistics from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on the 23rd, Korea’s real growth rate last year was -1.0%, the third highest among the 15 major countries for which related data were released.
According to OECD statistics, China ranked first (2.3%) and Norway (-0.8%) second. Indonesia (-2.1%) ranked fourth, followed by Sweden (-2.8%), the United States (-3.5%), Japan (-4.8%), Germany (-5.0%), and France (-8.2%).
China and Korea are considered to have been relatively less shocked due to the higher proportion of manufacturing industries than tourism and other services.
Although Norway does not have a high proportion of the manufacturing industry, it has benefited from quarantine measures, with the number of confirmed cases per 100,000 population being the lowest in Europe after Finland.
