U.S. Relationship With South Korea Could Serve As Model For U.S. Foreign Assistance

U.S. Global Leadership Coalition: From Aid to Trade: How South Korea is a Model for U.S. Foreign Assistance
Sung Lee, deputy policy director at USGLC, discusses the impact of U.S. foreign assistance in South Korea, writing, “American economic investment and humanitarian aid produced considerable dividends by helping to build the foundation for the economic transformation of South Korea, which has since [the Korean War] become America’s sixth largest trading partner. … U.S. foreign assistance not only helped South Korea’s transformation into America’s trading partner — South Korea is now itself a donor of foreign assistance” (7/31).
