Recent economic depression and unemployment issues have amplified the concerns regarding the competitiveness of Korean industries. Strengthening industrial competitiveness is one of the most important issues that the Korean economy faces. A vast amount of arguments and policy efforts on the issue have been made since the economic crisis. However, the growth engines of the Korean economy in the twenty-first century have not been clearly identified, which has been the cause of the increasing concerns and doubts about the competitiveness of Korean industries. What is the current status of Korean industries' competitiveness, and what will happen in the future? What are the best policy-tools to strengthen them?
In order to answer these questions, KDI had launched a two-year project on industrial competitiveness of Korea in early 2003. The KDI project tries to make, first of all, empirical study on changes in Korea’s industrial competitiveness.
The report is the result of the second year work on Korea’s industrial competitiveness. The work is done by KDI research staffs in collaboration with outside experts. Based on the research frameworks that were articulated in the previous year, the report comprises of three parts: Part I on the study of industries, Part II on some aspects of industrial competitiveness, and Part III on international comparison.
