Alternate title:Tiger of Asia
Summary:This program examines how cheap government loans in South Korea encouraged the growth of large conglomerates, and how new policies are helping small and medium companies to develop. Discusses the South Korean government's use of onerous anti-business tactics, such as tax audits on those Koreans who buy imported cars. Officials from conglomerates Daewoo, Samsung, and Hyundai discuss the business practices that contributed to their success. A British computer executive discusses ways in which foreign companies can cope with Korean business regulations and customs.
