Abstract

Study on Effective Relocation of Public Agencies outside the Capital Region of South Korea Currently, the capital region of Korea is suffering from severe overcrowding whereas the rest of the nation is extremely stagnated. Half the country’s population lives in the capital region which takes only 11.8% of the entire territory. As a result, the capital region is experiencing serious problems with traffic, housing and the environment, and it appears that it is difficult for the capital region to see improvement in quality of life while it keeps growing in size. On the other hand, the population of regions continues to decrease and their industries are getting increasingly depressed. In order to tackle the overpopulation problem in the capital region, various policies have been implemented for a long time including restrictions on location of factories in the capital region, however, these restriction-oriented policies have proven to be ineffective in solving the unbalance. Consequently, the incumbent Participatory Government has initiated a variety of policies for balanced national development which are geared to achieving harmonious development of the capital and non-capital regions.
