Whang, Unjung; Lee, Sooyoung; Kim, Hyuk-Hwang; Kang, Youngo | February 2018
In light of the importance of exports in the Korean labor market, this study looks into the effect of exports on employment using industry-level data for Korean manufacturing sector. We begin with exploring the main reason behind why export growth does not lead to sufficient job creation, and then examine the relationship between exports and employment from various perspectives. Based on empirical results, we derive some policy implications which could possibly strengthen the virtuous cycle between exports and employment.
