요약 After five decades of industrialization, Korea now resembles the major advanced
economies in its basic industrial profile. But with industrial activities heavily
concentrated in low to medium value added industrial activities such as processing
and production, Korea remains behind these economies in the quality of its
industrial structure. Except for a few elite firms that belong to Chaebols in select
fields such as semiconductors and automobiles, Korean firms lack their own basis
of competitiveness that is adequate to ensure their survival in the ever-accelerating
wave of open, innovation-based, global competition.

Korea must surmount huge obstacles to retain growth momentum in the medium
term and to become a competitive, knowledge-based economy with sound
fundamentals in the long term. What are the potentials of Korean industry and what
policies are needed to realize them? Addressing these questions, this paper briefly
reviews Korea's industrialization process to date and suggests that Korea's
industrial basis today need to be characterized and assessed from a dynamic,
comprehensive perspective. It diagnoses the limits and potential of Korean
industries in the context of the rising trends of global competition and co-operation
and discusses the basic direction of industrial upgrading as well as the requisite
policy measures. Stressing the importance of promoting small- and medium-sized
companies in particular, the paper suggestively sets forth a practical proposal for
establishing a cluster of firms in the machinery industry—both to upgrade this core
industry to compete in the environment of the twenty-first century and to provide a
new model of industrial and regional development for other Korean industries to
follow.
