U.S. and South Korea Move Towards an Economic, Technological, and Global Order Alliance, Strengthening Weak Links in the Indo-Pacific Strategy

22 May 2022  |  美国之音
U.S. President Joe Biden's first stop on his inaugural trip to Asia in South Korea has concluded, marking a significant shift from a military alliance to an economic, technological, and global order alliance with South Korea. The leaders of both nations have addressed the divergence in their approaches to North Korea's nuclear issue and have established economic and technological cooperation as a counterbalance to China, thereby strengthening a weak link in the U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy. South Korea announced its own Indo-Pacific strategy, which is expected to further expand the U.S.'s strategic space in the region. The discussions also covered global cooperation, emphasizing shared democratic principles and universal values. Notably, South Korea has joined the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework and will attend the launch summit in Tokyo via video link. The joint statement from the summit highlighted cooperation in various sectors, including semiconductors, supply chains, energy, and space, and addressed the peaceful stability of the South China Sea and the Taiwan Strait, which is considered a core element of security and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region.

South Korea likely to join the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework, scholars say: in line with South Korea's interests

26 Mar 2022  |  美国之音
South Korea is in continuous communication with the United States regarding participation in the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF), which is seen as largely beneficial for the country. The IPEF emphasizes setting standards and rules rather than traditional trade agreement structures. South Korea's government has shown a positive stance towards joining the IPEF, recognizing the need to address vulnerabilities in its supply chain, especially those exposed during the pandemic involving countries with market economy issues like China, Russia, and Vietnam. South Korean experts believe that the country holds advantages in areas such as infrastructure and supply chain within the IPEF. The move towards the IPEF also signals South Korea's intent to align more closely with the US economically, amidst complex trade environments and reliance on China for raw materials. China, on the other hand, has expressed concerns over the IPEF potentially excluding it and impacting China-South Korea relations.

What lessons can China learn from the history of real estate tax collection in South Korea? | Initium Media

16 Nov 2021  |  端傳媒 Initium Media
China is set to pilot a real estate tax aimed at guiding reasonable housing consumption and promoting 'common prosperity.' This initiative is similar to South Korea's real estate tax, which has been in place since 2005 to stabilize housing prices and promote balanced regional development. Despite differences in land systems, South Korea's implementation and outcomes of its real estate tax may offer insights for China. South Korea's tax faced challenges such as a high threshold for taxation and avoidance through property gifting, highlighting the need for effective policy design. The article discusses the evolution of South Korea's real estate tax policy, particularly after the 1997 Asian financial crisis, and the subsequent reforms under the Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun governments to curb speculation and promote regional development.

Reducing Dependence on China Becomes a Survival Strategy for South Korea's Chip Industry

07 Apr 2021  |  美国之音
The semiconductor industry is at the forefront of US-China competition, with the US accelerating the reorganization of the global semiconductor supply chain to ensure stable chip supply and contain China. South Korea, a key player in the global semiconductor industry, faces challenges, particularly due to its reliance on the Chinese market. The White House is convening a meeting on chip issues, with industry giants like Samsung Electronics and TSMC invited. Samsung, which has significant sales and production in both the US and China, may face pressure to choose sides. South Korea's semiconductor industry is heavily dependent on China for exports and production, posing risks amid US-China competition. South Korea is seeking to reduce its dependence on China, with moves such as SK Hynix exploring R&D centers in the US and Europe, and the government approving a large semiconductor cluster project. Despite China's push to develop its semiconductor industry, South Korea benefits from US restrictions on China and is cautious about deep cooperation with China to maintain its technological edge.

Chinese 'Cultural Hegemony' Sparks Anti-China Sentiment, South Korean Entertainment Industry Faces Risks

30 Mar 2021  |  美国之音
The South Korean TV drama 'Joseon Exorcist' was canceled after only two episodes due to strong backlash from viewers who accused it of distorting history and aligning with China's Northeast Project, which aims to integrate certain historical Korean kingdoms into Chinese history. The controversy has highlighted the influence of Chinese capital in the South Korean entertainment industry, with companies like Tencent investing heavily. The incident has exacerbated anti-China sentiment in South Korea, where cultural ownership disputes have been a sensitive issue. The cancellation of 'Joseon Exorcist' has resulted in significant financial losses for the broadcaster SBS and production companies. The case has raised concerns about the risks of Chinese influence and the need for South Korea to diversify its cultural industry's market strategy.

Confident China to Convene Rubber-Stamp Parliament

04 Mar 2021  |  voanews.com
China is set to highlight its economic achievements during the pandemic at the National People's Congress (NPC) session in Beijing, emphasizing its quick recovery and growth in contrast to other major economies. The NPC, viewed as a 'rubber stamp' parliament, will discuss China's five-year economic plan and may address goals for carbon neutrality by 2060 and increased economic self-reliance. U.S.-China relations remain a significant context, with China's economy projected to surpass the U.S. sooner than expected. The Biden administration's stance on China is less adversarial than Trump's, but human rights issues in Xinjiang and Hong Kong are points of contention. China's assertive policies in Taiwan and the South China Sea are also noted.

The Achilles' Heel of the US-South Korea Alliance: The North Korean Nuclear Issue

17 Feb 2021  |  美国之音
The US-South Korea alliance is facing challenges due to differing approaches to the North Korean nuclear issue. Under Trump's administration, South Korea's urgency and aggressive stance on the issue often clashed with US policy. The Biden administration has yet to announce its policy towards North Korea, but experts anticipate continued divergence between the US and South Korea. Recent revelations that South Korea may have explored building a nuclear power plant in North Korea have raised concerns about the alliance's unity. The US insists on a maximum pressure approach, while South Korea prioritizes peace processes and sees the inter-Korean relationship as separate from denuclearization. Amidst US-China competition and strained Japan-South Korea relations, South Korea's position in the US alliance network in Asia appears increasingly precarious.

Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong was sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison by the Seoul High Court for his involvement in a bribery case linked to former South Korean President Park Geun-hye and her confidante Choi Soon-sil.

The verdict breaks the pattern of suspended sentences for conglomerate heads, signaling a shift in South Korea's business-political relations. Samsung's semiconductor ambitions may be hindered, and there are concerns about the broader economic repercussions for the country, which is heavily reliant on Samsung's performance. The case also reflects a societal shift towards greater accountability for corporate leaders in South Korea.

In South Korea, Universal Basic Income is Having a Pandemic Moment

12 Oct 2020  |  www.voanews.com
South Korea's Gyeonggi Province is implementing a form of Universal Basic Income (UBI) by providing quarterly payments to 24-year-olds and additional cash during the pandemic. Governor Lee Jae-myung, a strong UBI advocate, believes this approach addresses economic challenges accelerated by the pandemic and technological advancements. While UBI gains popularity, critics argue it could strain welfare systems and is untested on a large scale. Governor Lee's policies have boosted his political prospects, positioning him as a potential presidential candidate in 2022.
