Korea has the highest percentage of its GDP spent on R&D compared to the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany. The country has a relentless focus on improving product design and quality. The Korean government is driving initiatives to improve efficiency and become a paperless society in 2021. In 2005, the government approved a framework for electronic signatures and, in 2012, for electronic forms. Companies can use electronic form solutions with digital signatures instead of paper, facilitating efficient handling of approval and contractual processes.
