Though are Asia growth stories mainly revolve around India and China, South Korea has remained a key player for these countries as one of their major trading and investment partners.

Subsequently, high and consistent economic growth made South Korea one of the high-income economies in Asia. Korea is still growing at a faster rate compared to other developed economies. India on the other hand adopted an import substitution policy since its Independence until the early 1990s.
