President Park Chung-hee transformed the Republic of Korea during his 18 years in office.
It completely changed all of the internal organs from the inside of the bones.
It shook off poverty for 5,000 years and put Korea, the poorest country, in the ranks of advanced countries with miraculous economic growth. President Park Chung-hee, who led the transformation, attracted talented people with his unique tolerance skills and encouraged loyalties to excellent civil service groups..
He embarked on a spiritual reform of the people and developed his own spiritual movement called the "Saemaeul Movement."
Born as the son of a poor farmer in Gyeongsang-do, Park Chung-hee graduated from Daegu Normal School, and took the first step in society as an elementary school teacher. However, Park Chung-hee supported the Japanese Military Academy to become a soldier in order to realize his bigger dream.
Park Chung-hee, who overcame numerous hardships in modern history, including World War II in 1945 and the Korean War in 1950, took power in 1961 by revolutionizing while serving as a major general of the Army.
Park Chung-hee, who pledged to fight poverty as a promise of revolution, called in businesses, academia and others to advise on the direction of economic development.
At that time, only the unemployed remained in the lives of the ruined country. These surplus was to turn the rural population into a factory workers so that they could work in factories, which are secondary industries.
The light industry was raised to raise seed money, and then the heavy and chemical industry was fostered to meet all the conditions that must be met as an advanced industrial country. This laid the foundation for Korea as an advanced manufacturing powerhouse. And earned dollars from the export drive policy.
However, some opposition parties tackled the promotion of the heavy and chemical industry, calling it an adventure close to gambling in terms of the nation's economic situation. However, President Park did not back down. Fostering the heavy and chemical industries is an essential project to become a powerful country, and domestic political stability was absolutely necessary if the policy of fostering them was to be pursued without a hitch. In particular, it was judged that achieving domestic political stability under the confrontation between the two Koreas was the most important thing, and finally the restoration Yusin was carried out in October 1972. It has secured political stability.
An extraordinary attachment to iron
The reason why Korean weapons are gaining popularity in the global market today is the result of President Park's extraordinary attachment to iron.
As mentioned earlier, Korea has poured all the funds received from Japan into the construction of Pohang Steel.
By benchmarking Nippon Steel Co., Ltd., Japan's world's largest steel company, Pohang Steel was built in sand pearl off Pohang by obtaining major facilities and technology. Although there were many obstacles and difficulties in obtaining materials and technologies from Nippon Steel, the story that Chairman Park Tae-joon had a special connection with a Japanese person he personally knew remains a secret story.
It became the world's largest steel company, beating Nippon Steel (Teacher), which Pohang Steel (student) taught technology. As a result of the Philippines' investment in the consumer goods industry, which received the same Japanese money at the time, the difference can be seen by looking at the gap in economic growth between Korea and the Philippines today.
Episodes related to the M-16 rifle in the 1970s---
When participating in the Vietnam War in 1964, the personal firearms provided to the Korean military were the M16 rifles. Until then, the Korean military was using the M-1 and Calvin rifles used by the U.S. troops in World War II. In response, Park Chung-hee tried in many ways to obtain M-16 rifle manufacturing technology from the United States.Finally, he succeeded in obtaining manufacturing technology from a gun manufacturer in the United States, and established a factory in Korea and produced rifles, a weapon of dreams.
Executives of a successful U.S. company that exported guns visited President Park at Cheong Wa Dae one summer..
It was to thank him for purchasing his company's weapons.
Entering the office, he said he was surprised to see President Park. Even though it was very hot, he didn't turn on the air conditioner and was working in front of the fan wearing the shirt.
He said he offered some money in front of President Park and asked her to accept it as it is customary to greet customers who have made large transactions according to his company's custom..
In response, President Park calmed her face for a moment and said, "Thank you. This money you gave me has become my money from now on. He said, "I'll use my money as I want," and pushed the money back and asked for more weapons as much as this money
The gun company representative, who was surprised twice, later said, "I have done business with many underdeveloped countries since President Park's death, but I have never experienced a person like President Park who is clean-hearted." The resulting gun manufacturing technology has since improved and developed into today's K-2 rifles.
Choice of the Republic of Malawi in Africa
Malawi, with a population of 20 million in the east of central Africa, is an example of resolving border disputes with neighboring countries in a single stroke since it was armed with K-2 rifles imported from by Korea.
Malawi has long been in conflict with neighboring Tanzania over a vast lake, one-third of its land. It is said that the fight between the two countries did not stop because the seafood from the lake accounted for a large portion of their food.
However, it is said that President Lazarus Chakera of Malawi imported K2 rifles from Korea and armed his own army, gaining military advantage and overpowering the Tanzanian army.
Therefore, it is said that abundant marine products were obtained and it took a large share in food self-sufficiency. In addition, it is said that agriculture has made rapid development by transferring advanced agricultural technology from Korea's Rural Community Corporation, transforming a food shortage country into a food export country.
In response, President Chaquera thanked the Republic of Korea, adding the Korean national flag to the Malawi flag, and saying that he wants to incorporate Malawi into the Republic of Korea.
Most of the African region is affected by socialism, and it is shocking that the Republic of Malawi is hoping to merge into the pro-Western democracy of the Republic of Korea.
In the future, there is a possibility of a boomerang oriented toward Korea among the countries in the region, drawing attention.
If Malawi is incorporated into Korea, the Republic of Korea will become the first country in the world to increase its territory without war.
It is the Republic of Korea, a country that has never invaded other countries and has always been invaded, and a country that has been persecuted as a Japanese colonial country.
However, the people are people with the spirit of the devotion to the welfare and good humanity despite all the hardships.If we entrust the management of the country to a country with such a good heart, Malawi will become a truly blessed country
Entrust state management to professionals!
Here, I would like to advise the leaders of developing countries such as Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia..
"Entrust the state to competent Korean national managers!"
This is in the same vein as when a company falls into a recession and loses its growth engine, the owner (leader) entrusts the company to a competent manager for consignment management. If left to a good professional manager, he will normalize the company or develop it into a large company in a short period of time with his unique management know-how.
The Republic of Korea has more know-how in Park Chung-hee-style national management than any other country.
Therefore, the Republic of Korea is also the country that can play the role of an economist who fosters poor countries.
The reason is that Korea has been hungry for long time and has been shivering in the cold.
He also has experience in developing from the world's poorest country to the top 10.
Korean workers are people with the world's strongest physical strength to work in the midst of temperature changes of 100 degrees, ranging from minus 40 degrees to 60 degrees Celsius.
The people of the Republic of Korea have experience of war and are still the only divided country in the world with 70 years of ceasefire, and they have the ability to protect national security well.
Since World War II, there has been a three-year Korean War, and there has been a 10-year guerrilla war in the Vietnam War.
Country has the ability to protect national security and lead to rapid economic growth as well as the Republic of Korea.
There is no more valuable know-how in the world than experience. This valuable experience that the Republic of Korea has experienced is a valuable asset that can never be bought by giving money or by force.
The Republic of Korea has a mindset to teach and distribute this precious asset to its neighbors.
The responsibility of a leader
The most important responsibility placed on the nation's leaders is to support and feed their people.
President Chakera of Malawi is a great leader who has carried out this responsibility most wisely and decisively. Resolving the food problem in a short time and protecting national security with South Korean weapons is something other leaders should emulate.
Look at North Korea today. What is the state of the country as a result of the three dictatorships,,,,
If you look at the pictures of the Korean Peninsula taken by satellites at night, the south forms a night sky, while the north forms a dark world. No further explanation is needed.
It is a wise judgment that President Chaquera of Malawi hoped to entrust Korea with state management. It is the decision of the sacrificial person to lay down his desire for power and entrust state management to the Republic of Korea, a professional management for the people.It is the courage to serve as a model for many neighboring countries.
Blue Ocean Weapons Market
The popularity of our weapons today is sky-high
Poland staged a protest march on Aug. 15 by featuring a large number of South Korean weapons at the Armed Forces Day event. Their event was like a Korean-made weapons exhibition hall by flying K-2 black tankers, K-9 self-propelled FA-50 fighter jets, and F-16 multi-purpose fighter drones.
Poland's demonstration of high-tech weapons, which borders Ukraine, may be meaningful to Russia, the aggressor, but it is an expression of trust in Korean weapons. Poland hopes to import multiple rockets, FA-50 light attack aircraft, and self-propelled guns in the future, and exports of defense materials are expected to reach about $30 billion in the future. Korea, which was once supported by fighter jets, has become a country that exports fighter jets.
In addition, Korean weapons are becoming more popular in Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia and in the global market such as Australia.
It was unexpected that President Park Chung-hee's extraordinary attachment to iron 50 years ago would turn Korea into an arms exporter today.
The secret to the popularity of Korean weapons is that they are of good quality, good delivery time, good A/S, and good price.
All of them originated from the development of the heavy and chemical industry, which they bet on the national fortune in the 1970s when they saw the far future of the country. This is one of Park Chung-hee's secrets. (Continuation)
