Korea is highly dependent on imports both of raw materials, especially energy, and capital goods. Imports of raw materials and capital goods accounted for 53.9% and 36.5% respectively of total imports in 1990. Foreign purchases of consumer goods, on the other hand, accounted for only 9.6% of the total.
