A Study on the Connectivity Between "New Northern Policy", "New Southern Policy" of Republic of Korea and the Belt and Road Initiative
In order to strengthen North-South economic cooperation in Korean Peninsula, to develop the Far East in Russia and to connect withChina's Belt and Road Initiative(BRI), Moon Jae-in government proposed New Economic Map of the Korean Peninsula, New Northern Policy and New Southern Policy. From a macro perspective, differences between New Northern Policy and BRI are more than common grounds. It is Russia, not China, serving as the primary partner for New Northern Policy. From a micro perspective, China's Northeast and Russia's Far East are overlapping areas for the two policies. New Southern Policy and BRI only overlap in third countries. The connectivity only happens when DPRK and the United States make an agreement on DPRK's denuclearization. In order to develop the Northeast region in China and to implement BRI in Northeast Asia, China needs to make further research on "connectivity", to propel the connectivity stably, to help DPRK's denuclearization, economic development, and the reunification of the Korean Peninsula.
