The study discussed in this paper, conducted in 2000, compares Internet use in the forest products industries in the United States and Korea. Overall, United States respondents had a greater level of usage of the Internet for eBusiness in 2000, but a higher percentage of Korean respondents indicated increases in Internet business applications in 2001. Korean respondents began using the Internet earlier than U.S. respondents and have invested less than their U.S. counterparts in developing Internet applications. Finally, Korean respondents have a higher level of perception of Internet benefits and a lower degree of concerns about using the Internet to conduct business than U.S. respondents.
