Abstract

The Industrial Location Policies Research Project (RPO 672-91) produced a series of UDD discussion papers in the following three categories: (1) descriptive studies on observed location pattern and policy planning implementation experiences, (2) theoretical development and policy simulation studies, and (3) empirical studies of the firm's location behavior. This paper as part of the empirical studies describes the survey of 500 manufacturing establishments conducted in the Seoul region and presents most salient findings from the survey. The results show the attributes of different types of firms and their site characteristics, and reveal important factors that determine individual firms' locational choice. The paper summarizes these findings by firm size and location tenure, i.e., newly established firms, relocated firms, and mature firms, those stayed at the same location.
