수입선다변화제도의 경제적 효과를 대일 수입비중 감소 및 수입대체로 대별할 수 있다고 할 때, 전자에 대해서는 여러 분석을 통하여 긍정적 결과를 얻을 수 있었으나, 후자의 경우는 통계적으로 유의성이 있는 결과를 발견할 수 없었다. 우선 수입선 다변화 관련 품목의 대일 수입비중은 전체 수입에서 차지하는 대일 수입비중과는 확연하게 다른 양상을 보였다. 특히 분석대상인 1980년대 기간 중 꾸준한 감소추세를 보였다. 그러나 일본 이외의 타국으로부터의 수입은 늘지 않아 다변화로 인해 수입억제효과만 나타난 경우도 상당히 있어서 단순히 대일 수입비중 감소가 시사하는 것보다는 수입선전환효과가 적었을 것으로 생각된다.
In the meanwhile import source diversification policy(ISDP) has had some merits in terms of controlling the trade deficit vis-a-vis Japan and fomenting domestic capital goods industry.
But on the other hand, there have been criticism about the negative side-effects of ISDP. First of all, for the most part, no consistent principles have been established on the types of products which are to be included or excluded from the policy. Thus, some suspect whether ISDP has only succeeded in protecting industry interests while creating many inefficiencies by restricting competition. In particular, since the end of 1980s when the export competitiveness of Korean products has dropped sharply, many people question the efficiency of ISDP.
Further, with respect to the outside world, ISDP violates GATT Principles. As such, ISDP not only produces a negative image concerning Korea's desire for free trade but is also likely to lead to demands for revision. And, in the context of Korea-Japan trade negotiations, Japan can be expected to use Korea's ISDP as a pretext to defend its protectionist policies and practices. Therefore, Korea must formalize its response to such actions by Japan.
In this connection, this study proposes to set forth plans for enhancing ISDP in the future on the basis of a critique of the economic efficiency of the said policy. Specifically, the focus of this study will center on the following questions.
First, what is the actual contribution of ISDP to the import source diversification of designated products and protection of domestic industry?
Second, with respect to major ISDP-designated products, what is their degree of import dependence on Japan and competitiveness status and, problems which can be expected to arise in the event of ISDP's cancellation?
Third, what are clear criteria for inclusion and exclusion within ISDP in order to enhance ISDP?
To answer the above questions, this paper has been structured as follows. The remainder of Part I deals with the purpose and actual status of ISDP, along with Japan's response to it. Part Ⅱ reviews and compares the conversion of import sources and import substitution effects for all products covered by ISDP. Furthermore, for the period 1988 - 1990, changes in import unit prices and export unit prices are examined. PartⅢ, which concentrates on 105 items for which consistent data are available, analyzes the dynamic changes in import and export during ISDP designation and cancellation. In particular, on the basis of the cancellation experience of some items, policy principles of ISDP designation and cancellation are derived. Part Ⅳ summarizes the principal results and offers directions for improvements in the enforcement of the policy in the future.
Finally, with regard to the actual evidece presented in the study, I must point out that the difficulties involved in obtaining consistent data created serious limitations. First of all, the classification of trade data was converted from CCCN(Customs Cooperation Council Nomenclature) to HS(Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System) in 1988. Also, as the reader might know, the method of classification differs for trade statistics and industry statistics (KSIC: Korean Standard Industrial Classification), limiting the feasibility of a systematic analysis of production and trade effects. Therefore, a direct investigation of the effects of ISDP not only on the relevant products but the entire economy left much to be desired. The issue of general efficiency of ISDP remains a research topic for future.
