The unexplored but inescapable path. This is what an FTA with China means
for Korea. Its influence will be unprecedented and greater than that of any
other FTA that Seoul has concluded so far. With Korea’s trade dependence on
China reaching over 25%, it’s fair to say that the success of the Korean economy
depends on how well it adapts to the new FTA paradigm. Since the 1980s,
China has always been at the center of the changing international trade environment.
Having recently emerged as the world’s second-largest economy,
China has provided boundless opportunity as well as occasional threats to the
Korean economy. That is why Korea should prepare itself well before setting
out on a new path.
