Key Market Issues
The South Korean government places increasing emphasis on technical cooperation and technology transfer, to ensure that the South Korean defense industry is not perceived as a sub-contracted supplier of low-technology parts. South Korea has changed its policies to achieve technology transfer in each of its defense deals to reduce its dependence on imports of advanced defense systems.
The most important factors for the South Korean Ministry of Defense (MoD) when making purchasing decisions are price, technology transfer, and offsets. The South Korean MoD has adopted a new provision that requires the foreign contractor to provide assurances in advance, that the proposed technologies will be transferred to the country prior to the approval of the offset contract.
