The heart of the regional value chain
Korea’s largest companies, including Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, and Hyundai Motor, are
building global value chains centered in Northeast Asia as they export to and invest in China and Japan.
At the same time, the electronics and automobile clusters they are creating are driving global growth in
those industries. This is why investing in Korea, the center of Northeast Asia’s global value chain,
is the most effective way to target China and other global markets.
