2007-2013, with the second being convergence and the third being competitiveness and employment. In Korea, regional cooperation projects began on a trial basis by receiving financial support from the government during the Lee Myung-bak administration. These projects were expanded under the new guidelines for regional development policies that were issued after Park Geun-hye took office, and it is expected that work on these projects will continue.
Such cooperation projects are aimed at reducing similar and overlapping investment along with unnecessary competition between regions while using cooperation to secure the comparative advantages of each region. In this way, each region can increase competitiveness, improve the quality of life for residents, and expand the benefits of development for all regions concerned. Economic regional cooperation projects, which account for most of the regional cooperation projects that have been underway since 2010 and had received most of the financing available for such projects, were concluded in April 2013. It is necessary to conduct a comprehensive review of the results, issues, and limitations of these projects over the past three years and to seek methods for improving the system. While some research has been carried out on regional cooperation projects in the past, there has been little analysis of the results and the problematic areas of the concluded cooperation projects. Also, not enough research has been done regarding policy suggestions based on such analysis.(The rest is omitted)
