This study aims to present policy recommendations to strengthen the competiveness of the knowledge-based economy, which is necessary to advance Korean industrial structure.
In the 1990s, the Korean economy entered the stage of development in which the integration of information within an industry is critical, which has led to the integration of service and manufacturing centers, and advancement of the information service industry. Korea’s information service industry is becoming increasingly important as it works as a catalyst for the integration of knowledge from all industries, most notably in areas such as licensing, design, engineering, marketing, and software.
However, Korea’s knowledge service industry has been in a relatively disadvantageous position compared to other traditional service industries, such as manufacturing. Addressing this issue is essential.
To foster the growth of the information service industry, Korea should establish: active support for the information service industry—which has shown the substantial growth and effects other industries as well, clear categorization of industries, streamlining of the transfer of statistical data, and clear establishment of a pertinent policy agency. In addition, there should be established active policy to support the information service industry, and appropriate environments for knowledge transaction. Also, provision should be made for stronger protection of intellectual property, and elimination of a number of social institutions and regulations that are detrimental to knowledge transaction.
