RE : Tale of Three Shipbuilding Nations.


I have contributed a column in Korean under the captioned title at the monthly magazine Magazine N for years. It has covered the market share, the development of shipbuilding technologies and financing, in comparison among three leading shipbuilding nations, such as Korea, China and Japan.

This month, I touched a very delicate subject, the competitiveness in the industry, which no one brings for open debate. This subject becomes very serious, definitely as a matter of live or die in Korean shipbuilding industry.

Concerned authorities started a talk on the subject from this week, and I am determined to continue to argue, even against an open complaint from major yards, because it is vital for the survival of the industry in the years to come.

Best regards,

Sung Hyuk Hwang.
