Abstract

1. South Korea has made considerable progress toward economic globalization since the start of the 21st century. Companies have accelerated their global business expansion through exporting and overseas production activities, while the government has provided additional impetus for this trend by actively expanding its network of free trade agreements (FTAs). This process has brought changes in Japan’s positioning from the viewpoint of South Korea, and South Korea’s positioning from the viewpoint of Japan.
2. South Korea’s growing reliance on exports to emerging countries, including China, has been accompanied by a decline in its reliance on exports to Japan, which fell from 11.9% in 2000 to 6.0% in 2010. South Korea’s reliance on imports from Japan has also declined, although it was still above 15% in 2009 and 2010, indicating that Japan is still an important counterparty for imports.
