As the limitations of reliance of port development on simple cargo increases become evident, general agreement for a mutually coordinated network between ports, the adjacent hinterlands, and industrial complexes, that will create more jobs and generate value-added through the inducement of globally active industries into the port-surrounding region, is being voiced. Neighboring countries, like China and Japan, are giving consideration to the construction of ideal urban infrastructure for the port freight-based industry, to the building of Port Biz Valley (PBV) that facilitates a mutual spill-over effect to port, hinterland, industrial complex, and city equally, and are putting forth efforts to strengthen the international competitiveness of their nation’'s domestic port freight industry.
Thus, Korea needs to formulate a globally competitive PBV model that will work
in coordination with the port and hinterland regions, and derive a strategy and plan
of action to implement the model.
This research conceptualizes a PBV that is tailored to the Korean environment, formulates a model, applies an example, and suggests strategies as well as institutional reform plans on the creation of a productive PBV that works in accordance with the Economic Regions.
However, the research also has some weaknesses. Namely that, in terms of spatial planning, the Port Biz Valley is the first of its kind and thus will entail many
shortcomings. Hence, a detailed outline of action and a list of goals to supplement the project itself are needed so that these shortcomings may be reduced as much as possible.
In this research, the new PBV idea holds a meaning that is distinguished from the archetypical port, port-hinterlands, and industrial complex concept; one that represents an innovative paradigm of space. And as a new attempt to introduce such an idea in an information technology driven generation, the research for the creation of a Korean-tailored PBV is not only very progressive, but also very theoretical. In particular, the inclusion of the logistics sector, which aims to actualize intermodalism, into the PBV idea will assist in the development of the cargo industry.
Also, networks formed by the implementation of the PBV, which span nearly half
the Korean Peninsula, will greatly influence the growth of the economic regional logistics industry, as well as play a large role in the economic growth of the nation
as a whole.
The research will delineate an efficient and systematic PBV that conforms to the
region’'s specific traits and functions, thus the establishment of policies that will foster the expansion of PBV’'s as centers for regional development is encouraged.
