A major chapter in Korean history is facing a quiet end: Seoul office of the UN Development Programme, established 1963 to provide aid to Korea, closed on Dec. 29, 2009 because it determined that its mission has been accomplished.


  1. this is a great news, both for korea and the world!

    as a korean american, i am truly grateful for all the help the world has given to my mother land. without such, korea would not be where it is today. i remember living dirt poor in korea, and my family and i moved to the US 30+ years ago to seek a better future, and haven't been back since. though my home now is the US, and it will always be, i long to go back and see the place of my birth and the land of morning calm that my ancestors have lived for centuries. korea will always have a special place in my heart and soul.

    i wish all the best for korea...

  2. All I can say is...they kept giving aid until 2009?? I would've thought they would've been done a good five years earlier, at the very least!

  3. Bureaucracy moves slowly. But yes, great news all around.

  4. Well in this article it said they did stop giving aid to South Korea in 2000.
