South Korea/ 6.2 Public cultural expenditure  

6.2.3 Sector breakdown

Division of work in the Ministry of Culture makes it somewhat difficult to present a sector breakdown of the budget according to traditional classification of arts and culture. The cultural industry is the only category of expenditure to which an increasing proportion of the whole government budget has been allocated in recent years (9% in 2009 and 14.3% in 2011).
