Abstract

The purpose of this report is to examine the effect of the tariff rate policy on the industrial structure in Korea. To this end, we construct a time series of the effective rate of tariff protection and perform an empirical analysis about the industrial structure with this newly constructed tariff rates.
The empirical results show that the effective rate of tariff protection have influential effects on the trade specialization index and the degree of dependence on import, as desired. Thus, it is advised that we raise the effective rate of tariff protection on the major industries. For example, we can have two-part tariff rates according to the structure of industry: zero rates for lower value-added products like raw materials and uniform tariff rates for higher value-added parts and materials. We can also adjust selectively a uniform tariff rate to solve a lower tariff rate phenomenon in raw and materials than in finished goods.
So far as industrial structure is concerned, the emphasis on tariff policy should be placed on fostering the domestic growth industries like a higher value-added intermediate goods rather than protecting weak industries.
