South Korea is in a good position - the fourth largest economy in Asia with an educated workforce. Political alignment with the US and Europe gives South Korea access to international markets that it might not otherwise get so easily. This will be advanced further by the free trade agreements (FTAs) currently being pursued with the US and EU. South Korea is also in a strong regional position as its standards of corporate governance have improved since the Asian financial crisis at the end of the 1990s - more so, in fact, than in many neighbouring countries.
South Korea's business environment should receive a significant boost from the government's deregulation drive. President Lee Myung-bak has vowed to cut taxes and red tape to stimulate investment and his background as a former CEO gives him a strong understanding of business issues. South Korea's central bank has kept interest rates low as expected, and inflation has remained stable - helped in part by the position of the currency against the US dollar. Moody’s has predicted the nation’s economy will grow 3.3% in 2010 although the upward trend of real estate prices, noted in H109, appears to have faltered in H209.
South Korea has been awarded the role of host for the 2012 World Expo, the third largest world event. This will lead to upgrades to the country’s transport network and construction projects, which resonate with the opportunities presented by the renovation industry - many South Korean buildings are in need of refurbishment.
Vacancy rates are expected to rise further with the reopening of Samsung Main Tower and Seoul Square. Landlords have responded to the high vacancy rates with a wave of incentives which make it difficult to judge the real fall in rents. Depending on the market response, these incentives could develop into even more aggressive rental cuts. Despite this, there are clear signs the South Korean economy is on the rebound and analysts are predicting leasing demand will increase in 2010.
The South Korean construction market was hit hard by the global economic downturn and recent government moves to inhibit property market speculation will have a negative effect on new housing. South Korea has seen a contraction in the construction industry in recent years which is linked to a vast reduction in the level of fixed capital formation forecast in 2009 by BMI’s country risk analysts. That said, the building and construction sector has been a driving force behind the overall economy since 1999 and the country is home to several of the world’s largest international contractors. From 2010 onwards BMI analysts are predicting positive growth will return to the construction industry as the impact of the government’s vast spending commitments trickles down.
