The shift of manufacturing industry from Japan, the first industrializing nation in East Asia, to neighbouring South Korea and China saw the emergence of restructuring problems and policies in traditional industries and regional economies depending on them. Based on a literature review on this topic in East Asia, this paper draws three conclusions. First, the resource endowments of the three countries differ greatly and consequently also the magnitude of restructuring problems. Second, governments in all three countries strongly affect restructuring processes, albeit with different policies and at different spatial scales. Third, although many studies have a strongly applied, policy-oriented character, recent research, particularly in China, has started to use evolutionary theories and to engage with debates of mainstream economic geography.
东亚老工业区重构研究. Area Development and Policy. 制造业从东亚第一个工业化国家日本向周边的韩国和中国转移,导致传统工业和倚赖于传统工业的区域经济出现了一系列重构问题和相关政策。基于对关于东亚这一主题研究的文献综述,本文得出了三个结论。第一,这三个国家的资源禀赋大不相同,因此导致重构问题的程度也有所不同。第二,这三个国家的政府都强有力地影响着重构过程,尽管采取的政策和影响的空间尺度各不相同。第三,虽然很多研究都具有明显的应用和政策导向特征,但最近尤其是中国的研究,已经开始运用演化理论并关注主流经济地理学问题的讨论。
