Abstract

Korean Abstract: 한국은 지경학적 관점에서 연변의 가능성에 주목할 필요가 있다. 연변은 뉴노멀 시대의 중국경제에 능동적으로 대응하고, 한국의 대(對)중국 진출전략을 새로이 수립하는 과정에서 중요한 교두보라 할 수 있다. 또한 중국 및 동북아, 유라시아 대륙의 관문에 위치해 있어 한국의 한반도 신경제지도 구현과 신북방전략 추진에 중요한 거점이기도 하다. 북한 후방에 위치하여 한국의 창조적 대(對)북 관여(engagement)전략 실행의 장이 될 수 있다. 따라서 이 연구는 연변의 경제발전 과정 및 현황, 한국과 연변의 그간 경제협력과 장애요인, 한국 및 연변 기관· 기업의 경제협력에 대한 평가 등을 종합적으로 분석하여 향후 연변에 대한 한국의 성과와 단기·중장기 경제협력방안을 강구해보고자 하였다.

English Abstract: The Yanbian Autonomous Prefecture (“Yanbian”) of China’s Jilin Province is a border area between the northeastern part of the Korean Peninsula and China and is often referred to as the Tumen River region. Yanbian is a major residential area for ​​Korean ethnic groups and uses both Chinese and Korean as official languages. It is a place which retains the history of the independence movement of the nation, and Baekdu Mountain is located in this region as well. As such, the region shares a deep emotional bond with the Korean Peninsula. However, from a geo-economic point of view, Korea needs to try a new approach to Yanbian. Yanbian can act as an important test bed and bridgehead in the process of actively responding to the changing Chinese economy in the era of “new normal,” and in the process of establishing new strategies for Korea to advance into China. In addition, Yanbian is an important hub for Northeast Asia and an important gateway to China and Eurasia. Located adjacent to North Korea, the region will be able to induce the opening of North Korea by serving as a space to establish and execute a creative strategy of engagement with North Korea. Therefore, this study sought to identify more concrete cooperation plans in the short and medium term, based on the necessity of economic cooperation for Korea in the Yanbian area. For this purpose, we analyze the process and status of the economic development of Yanbian and analyze the economic cooperation process and obstacles between Korea and Yanbian. In addition, we conducted a more in-depth analysis through joint research with the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Shenyang and the researchers of the Economic Research Institute of the Korean Peninsula Research Institute of Yanbian University.
