The Middle East

The Middle East is home to both rich countries boasting abundant reserves of oil and other natural resources, on the one hand, and some of the world’s least developed and fragile poorest countries. The Middle East is noteworthy because it is one of the world’s conflict-ridden regions, carrying risk for armed struggles and violence. After the revolution widely spread in the Middle East countries, demand for government’s transparency and capacity building has increased to meet the people’s desire for democracy and job-creation.

Korea intends to provide about 10% of its intended bilateral aid for five major partner countries in this region. In particular, the Korean government participates in numerous projects of cooperation geared toward the post-war reconstruction of Iraq and the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that will be necessary to ensure the peace and stability of the region in the future. Korea also plans to provide support for greater basic education and job-related training, development of waterworks and basic public health services, and information and telecommunication to meet the basic human needs and to achieve sustainable development.
