Employment Policy to Counter the Korea-Japan FTA
Employment Policy to Counter the Korea-Japan FTA
  • SUMMARY
    The main purpose of this study is to examine the effects of the Korea-Japan FTA on the labor market and provide the quantitative basis and information on relevant systems, so that countermeasures for the working class victimized by the FTA may be provided.
    The second chapter of the study summarizes the features and effects of the FTA, as well as other FTA-related information to help its understanding. In addition, the chapter cites previous studies to present the background and significance of the Korea-Japan FTA, its developments, anticipated effects and by-sector outlooks. Chapter 3 sets up several scenarios of the FTA’s economic effects based on the CGE model and export-import variations. The scenarios will have different time frames and different degrees of competition, economy of scale, and tariff removal to estimate the economic impact of each scenario. Based on these estimates, the FTA’s effect on the labor market (especially the manufacturing sector) will be analyzed in terms of unemployment by industry, occupation, and technological level. In Chapter 4, cases from industrialized countries are explored to gain some lessons on how to design countermeasures against adverse side effects of an FTA. The backgrounds, development processes, current statuses and performance and evaluation of the Trade Adjustment Assistance of the U.S. and the Structural Funds of the European Union are examined in this chapter. Lastly, Chapter 5 concludes with a summary of countermeasures derived from previous chapters.
