2020 CHINA II

The Present and Future of China’s Threat to Korea’s Key Industries

Since the global financial crisis, Korea has effectively penetrated the emerging economies and increased its share in the world market. However, there have recent warning signs despite Korea’s success. Companies in China are aggressively expanding investment both domestically and globally and rapidly increasing their competitiveness in human resources, rising as a strong contender against Korea.
