Jin-Goo Gim, Jong-In Lee
The purpose of this study is to identify and evaluate the competitiveness of container ports in ASEAN(Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and Korea, which plays a leading role in basing the hub of international logistics strategies at the onset of the 21 st century. Its ultimate purpose is to consider the relevant policy-making by comparing the competitiveness of ASEAN and Korea’s container ports. This paper adopted the HFP method, which is an empirical analysis that evaluated the port competitiveness by quantifying it as a qualitative attribute in the aforementioned area, where both ASEAN and Korea vie with each other for increasing container throughput. The results of this study showed that Singapore ranked the first in the subject of study in view of the competitiveness, followed by Busan(2) and Manila(2) as a leading group of the relevant ports in international logistics strategies. This analytic evaluation contributes to the empirical approach applied to policy-making by the HFP method, which is the newest research technique in social science through the comparative study of port competitiveness between ASEAN and Korea.
