「 The Effect of Korean-Chinese Immigrants to the Trade and FDI Between China and South Korea 」
Hundreds of thousands of Korean population came to South Korea after the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and South Korea. These people who are familiar with the language and culture of both China and South Korea have made important contributions to the economic and cultural exchanges between China and South Korea.
This paper estimates the effect of Korean-Chinese residences to trade and FDI of South Korea. I found the total number of Korean-Chinese living in South Korea is closely related to the trade between China and South Korea, while the number of Chinese other than Korean-Chinese living in South Korea is not significantly related to it.
