Excludes Korea's preferential country in Japan Voices of doubt about the effectiveness of de facto countermeasures



From the report gathered, On the 12th, the Korean government announced a system amendment plan that excludes Japan from the target countries for preferential treatment in export control on security. 

This is a de facto counter measure against the Japanese government's decision to exclude Korea from the “White State”, which takes preferential treatment in security export control. Expected to take effect in September after a 20-day public invitation and review. The Korean side has also taken measures for the trade system, and further deterioration of the relations between Japan and Korea has become unavoidable.


Sung Yun-mo, Minister of Industry and Trade Resources at a press conference, explained the reason for the system revision: "It is difficult to work closely with the country," he admitted to confirming that Japan was a countermeasure against the exclusion of White. South Korea has assigned 29 countries that participate in the four international frameworks for export control to the “K” region, which is the subject of preferential treatment, and other countries, such as China, to the “N” region. In this amendment proposal, Japan is newly divided into “Kano 2” by dividing it into “Kano 1” and “Kano 2”. By entering “Kano 2”, the comprehensive license becomes difficult to apply for the export of strategic goods from Korea, and the examination period for individual licenses will be extended from 5 days to 15 days, and procedures will be tightened. .

Naru said during the 20-day public comment period, “If the Japanese government asks for consultation, we are ready to respond anytime, anywhere,” and that this announcement is a card for negotiating with Japan to withdraw measures. Blurred. At first, the Korean government also considered a plan to add a new “ta” classification to “K” and “Na” and distribute only Japan. In that case, it may be perceived as a stronger exclusion measure than Japan's exclusion from Korea. The level of measures has been adjusted in anticipation of future appeals to the World Trade Organization (WTO). However, the Korean newspaper, Chuo Nippo (electronic version) analyzed that “excluding certain items such as steel and metal, the export ratio of strategic materials such as advanced materials to Japan is very low, and whether it is effective is unknown” Introduction. 

On the other hand, it is pointed out that it will increase the loss of Korean companies that export to Japan.
