This study aims to suggest development directions for the major North Korean cities in the context of inter-Korean economic integration. Based on the case study on transition economies and quantitative analysis on industrial potentials of the North Korean cities, directions of industrial restructuring are suggested. This study consists of seven chapters including conclusions.
The first chapter discusses the background and need of the study, research objectives and methods. This chapter also briefly examines some major results of other research activities related with this study.
In Chapter 2, the prospects of inter-Korean economic integration and of direction for economic restructuring are suggested. Inter-Korean economic integration could be implemented in threestages, which are the beginning stage, the expansion stage and the deepening stage.
At the beginning stage, we can prospect that North Korea will make use of the agricultural-fishery sector and labor intensive light industry for attracting foreign investments, and will foster new growth industry by bringing up IT sector.
At the expansion stage, North Korea will bring up low technology and labor-intensive light industries such as fiber, footwear and toy. Partial restructuring on heavy industries will be possible in this stage.
At the deepening stage, the fundamental change will happen in the course of economic reform of North Korea's industries. And labor forces will shift from the heavy chemical and munitions industry to light industries and services on a large scale in this stage. (The rest is omitted.)
