Throughout North Korea’s history, it has regarded external relations with suspicion and as a potential threat to its regime. With North Korea working towards denuclearization, there is now hope for an economic opening. This book examines the external economic strategies that North Korea may consider for its reforms and development, which are related to the East Asian economic integration process. This book emphasizes that considering theoretical factors as well as conditions of the North Korean economy, economic opening and integration should have high priority, anteceding or at least being parallel to economic reforms and transformation. Also, among various alternative strategies for achieving the goal of economic reform and development based on economic opening, the utilization of East Asian regional economic integration framework would be the best option for North Korea, because this framework can provide an opportunity for North Korea to overcome structural problems in its external economic relations and to circumvent political conflicts, thus leading to a smoother rapprochement towards economic opening. This book is timely as it shows how a new economic recovery strategy on the Korean Peninsula may be accomplished.

Since the late 1970s a number of regional developments have impacted upon South Korea’s political and economic standing in Asia. China’s spectacular growth and closer integration with its neighbouring economies, along with a tendency toward more assertive political and diplomatic activity, have deeply altered both the economic and political East Asian environment. Simultaneously, the 1997-98 financial crisis catalysed a process of increased regional co-operation in East Asia. China’s rise has imposed a leadership problem that may constitute a major obstacle on the road to deeper regional integration, as well as add force to the need for collective action, and it is this paradox that may give South Korea a key role in the reorganization of the region. Moreover, inter-Korean relations and Korea’s future security environment may also feel the effects of the rise of China. Korea in the New Asia seeks to analyze to what extent and how South Korea may contribute to, and take advantage of, the new regional configuration in East Asia. The book represents the first study to address Korea’s regional policy responses to the rise of China as an economic power and the regional economic integration of East Asia. Written by an international team of experts, this multidisciplinary study will appeal to researchers, academics and students with an interest in international relations, security studies, economics and East Asian politics. .

In the 1980s the countries of Asia-Pacific first experienced -economic miracles.- After a short period of stagnation and retrenchment in the 1990s, economic prosperity is again in full swing from the beginning of the twenty-first century. The major driving force behind this is the rapidly growing economic and technical cooperation among countries--China, Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asian countries--in the region, attributable to liberalization of trade and Free Trade Agreements efforts which are expected to lead to the establishment of a common market like the EU. This book is the most comprehensive compendium of expertise about the current economic exchanges and chances of a common market in the Asia-Pacific realm. The perspectives are substantiated by case studies. Sung-Jo Park is an economist at the Institute for East Asian Studies at the Free University Berlin (Germany). Jongwon Lee is professor at the Department of International Trade, Suwon University (Republic of Korea) and editorial director of the Journal of Contemporary European Studies.

Regional economic integration has become a key force in international commercial policy in the 2000s. Europe has traditionally embraced regionalism; the United States became actively involved in preferential trading arrangements only in the 1980s. While Asia has been late in accepting formal regional economic integration accords, all Asian countries are now in the process of creating various free-trade areas and other forms of economic integration programs, and some are already in place. This volume analyzes the regionalism trend from an Asian perspective. It considers the lessons from, and the economic implications of, various economic integration programs in the OECD (mostly the EU but also NAFTA), as well as the proposals for closer economic integration in the region itself. Chapters deal with both real and financial integration issues. Sample Chapter(s). Chapter 1: East Asian Economic Regionalism: Progress and Challenges (1,660 KB). Contents: Introduction (M G Plummer & E Jones); East Asian Economic Regionalism: Progress and Challenges (M Kawai); Sequencing Regional Integration in Asia (R Pomfret); ASEAN+3: Is an Economic Community in Their Future? (J Angresano); Stock Market Performance in ASEAN: Is Institutional Integration Warranted? (R W Click & M G Plummer); The Institution of a Single Currency Area: Lessons for Asia from the European Monetary Union (S Rossi); Deep Integration and Its Impacts on Non-Members: EU Enlargement and East Asia (H Lee & D van der Mensbrugghe); Small Change: A Critical Examination of the Economic Relationship Between South Asia and the European Union (J W Moses and Maggi Brigham); The Effects of North-South Regional Trade Policies: A Comparison of Mediterranean Countries with ASEAN (N P(r)ridy); Reconciling the Tensions Between Regional Integration and Cohesion (M Farrell); Lessons for Asia?

Increasing numbers of free trade and economic partnership agreements have been concluded among many countries in East Asia, and economic integration has progressed rapidly on both a de facto and de jure basis. However, as the authors of this book argue, integration may intensify regional inequalities in East Asia and so this process has attracted much attention of late. Will it actually succeed in achieving greater economic growth or will it in fact cause growing regional disparity? This book presents a clear picture of East Asian integration, focusing on various aspects including: the structure of intra-regional trade industrial location patterns especially of multinational enterprises the formation of industrial agglomeration the development of political and institutional frameworks for integration. Economic Integration in East Asia addresses these issues from the perspectives of both spatial and neoclassical economics. As the book highlights, if the regional disparities continue to grow, this may constitute a fatal obstacle to deepening integration and the growth potential of East Asia. With its focus firmly on recommendations for the future, this book will be of great interest to academics and researchers of development, Asian studies and economic geography as well as development specialists in government and international organizations involved in East Asian integration.
