You are free to make your own assessment of the Korean model of heavy and chemical industrialization. As an author of the HCI Plan and its manager, however, I must tell you that Korea succeeded in HCI because it had clear goals and approaches – the Engineering Approach – for achieving the set aims. To achieve these collective goals without a hitch, I advised President Park to declare the HCI Plan as integral to the Yusin reform agenda. Without a guarantee of that caliber, I was afraid that the Plan could easily be changed or even stopped as soon as the “political will” changed. If that had happened, Korea would have been ruined.
