Chapter Summary

This chapter of the book presents a chronology of events in the Korean Peninsula in 2012. 2012 was a 'super election year' in the Republic of Korea (ROK-South Korea). While the national elections in the ROK sparked particular interest in 2012, some other developments and events also merit mentioning. The South Korean economy lost some steam as demand for manufactured goods from the ROK cooled in the European Union (EU), which was struggling with a major sovereign debt crisis, but subsequently also in China. The ROK's export-reliant economy only grew by 2 percent, the lowest growth since the crisis year of 2009. In July 2012, the ROK's new second political centre, Sejong city, was officially opened. In the summer of 2012, South Korean athletes impressed during the Olympic Games in London.

Keywords: China; European Union (EU); Korean Peninsula; Republic of Korea (ROK)
