Description
As Korea achieved a sustained economic growth with an average annual rate of 8% over the past two decades, she now faces the future as an advanced industrial society. Per capita income has reached the level of US$5500 IN 1990, which is 20 times as much as the level, US$226, of 1970. Moreover, trade has been increasing to become one of the ten biggest trade volume holding counties im the world.

Contrasting to such a remarkable economic success, the Korean society is confronted with problems, such as explosively increased number of urban migrations, and a collapse of people's sense of public order. However, among these problems, order in streets is probably the most urgent issue of December 1990. The number of automobilees in Korea has reached approximately 4 millon In Seoul alone, where the number and the size of population exceeds 10 million. Even in such conditions, most people show rather self-centered and selfish attitudes in public places.

Thus it is time that the traditional "considering others first", is encouraged more than ever. In an attempt to raise an awareness of public order, the Ministry of Communications issues this postage stamp with the theme of "Waiting for one's turn".
