Abstract

Korean Abstract: 본 연구는 ‘최근 국제통상 환경의 변화에 따른 한국의 새로운 통상정책 방향’이라는 주제하에 이상의 두 가지 기본적인 질문에 해답을 주고자 하였다. 이를 위해 본 연구의 제2장에서는 최근 나타나고 있는 세계경제 및 국제통상질서의 변화를 중심으로 한국의 통상정책이 고려해야 할 정책환경을 심층 분석하였다. 제3장에서는 세계경제질서의 주도국인 미국의 통상정책 변화와 보편적인 현상으로 자리잡은 신보호무역주의의 원인과 배경, 그리고 그 추세를 파악하려고 노력하였다. 제4장은 한국경제가 당면하고 있는 여러 가지 문제점 중에서 통상정책과 관련 있는 핵심적인 현안들을 심층적으로 점검하는 데 중점을 두었다. 제5장에서는 제2~4장에서 얻어낸 분석 결과와 시사점을 종합적으로 조망하면서, 앞으로 한국의 통상정책이 나아가야 할 방향을 제시하였다. 특히 이 장에서는 ① 선진 통상시스템 구축 ② 포용적인 통상정책 채택 ③ 안정적 국제통상질서에 기여하는 통상정책 구현 등 세 가지를 한국 통상정책의 비전으로 제시하는 한편, 이에 기초하여 한국 통상정책의 5대 과제를 제시하고 이를 달성하는 구체적인 조치들로 9대 세부추진전략들을 설명하였다.

English Abstract: With the overall theme of 'Korea’s new trade policy direction under changing international trade environment,' this study pursued to provide policy consultation to the question of 'how can the Korean economy and more specifically Korea’s trade policy address the continuous weakening of locational advantages caused by the challenges mentioned above?' For this purpose, Chapter 2 of this study characterizes main features of recent changes in the world economic and trade order. A strong focus was given here to the analysis of the trends and implications of ‘global value chains (GVCs)’ and ‘re-shoring’, as well as the changes in the multilateral and regional trading system. Chapter 3 then was devoted to the detailed investigation of new developments in US trade policy and the proliferation of the new protectionism, which have been identified as most significant threats to the outward-oriented economies like Korea. Based on the analysis of chapters 2 and 3, Chapter 4 identifies five challenges facing the Korean economy that bear relevance to trade policy. Based on the insights earned through the previous chapters, Chapter 5 developed the basic framework for the future direction of Korea’s trade policy. Especially, this study presented 3 long-term visions for Korea’s trade policy: ① establishment of an advanced structure of Korea’s trade policy, ② adoption of an inclusive trade policy, and ③ trade policy contributing to the stability of international trade order. Based on these three visions, the research team successfully derived five trade-policy tasks and 9 actions plans. Main rationales and contents are detailed in the report.
