Korea in the Pacific century : selected speeches, 1990-1992 by Tae Woo Roh( Book )

Roh Tae Woo was born into a farming family in 1932. He was raised in a small village which is now a part of Taegu, Korea's third largest city. He attended Taegu's Kyongbuk High School graduating in 1951. The outbreak of the Korean War thwarted his ambition to be a medical doctor and, instead, he joined the army and served as a combat infantryman. In 1952, he was accepted into the prestigious Korean Military Academy. After a distinguished military career, he retired as a four-star general in 1981. President Roh's civil service career began in July 1981 with his appointment as Minister of State for National Security and Foreign Affairs, a position he held until he was named the first Minister of Sports in March 1982. Subsequently, he held such positions as Minister of Home Affairs, President of the Seoul Olympic Organizing Committee and the Korean Amateur Sports Association, and member of the National Assembly. He was elected president of Korea on December 16, 1987 and sworn in on February 25, 1988. In addition to his duties as the nation's Chief Executive, President Roh serves as leader of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party. During the 1987 presidential campaign, he surprised his opponents and supporters alike by proposing a sweeping political reform package. His June 29 Declaration for Democratic Reform led to the democratization of Korea after decades of authoritarianism. Today, civil liberties are protected, fair elections are guaranteed and there is a stable balance of power in the Korean government. Despite the challenges of fundamental political reform, Korea's economic growth rate has remained high, averaging 9 percent during the Roh administration. Both gross national product and per capita income have doubled during President Roh's tenure. This experience has shown that economic development can go hand-in-hand with political reform, an important lesson for the world's emerging democracies. The Roh administration also has achieved remarkable successes in the realm of foreign affairs. In September 1988, Seoul hosted the Olympic Games. For the first time in years, the sporting festival was unfettered by political boycotts and, in fact, a record number of nations participated. The 1988 Seoul Games are considered the most successful Olympics ever. Also in 1988, President Roh unveiled his "Northern Policy," which sought to improve Seoul's relations not only with North Korea but also with the North's allies in the socialist world. Today, all major nations of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union have normalized relations with Seoul. Korea also has established extensive economic and cultural ties with China. Reacting to the shifting international environment, North Korea agreed to open the first-ever high-level official talks with Seoul and embraced South Korea's proposal for full membership of both the South and the North in the United Nations. In 1992, Seoul and P'yongyang forged several landmark agreements aimed at tension reduction and reconciliation. For the first time since national division in 1945, solid progress is being made toward Korean reunification
