Historic decline due to technological decline

Last year’s corona epidemic led to South Korea’s economy shrink for the first time in 22 years. Jobs are disappearing and purchasing power is declining.

South Korea’s GDP fell 1 percent from the previous year. The country must go back to 1998 when it was in the midst of a deep financial crisis to find the last time the country’s economy shrank. Preliminary figures from the country’s central bank show this on Thursday.

The situation would have been even worse last year had it not been for the country’s technology exports. The epidemic last year forced millions of workers to spend time in home offices around the world. This increased the demand for computers and servers.

The central bank’s forecast for the current year is moderate growth driven by exports. But according to the forecast, it will take longer for the labor market to get back on its feet.
