CNN South Korean businesses were rattled Friday by signs that the deployment of a controversial U.S. missile system in the country could spark a travel boycott by China. The government in Seoul said it believed Chinese authorities had told travel agencies in Beijing to stop selling trips to South Korea, intensifying fears of a trade war between the neighbors. The Chinese government, which is upset about South Korea's decision to host the THAAD missile defense system, denied any knowledge of such an order. "Instead of chasing shadows that don't exist, we hope the South Korean side will heed the voice of the people and take concrete actions to avoid causing further damage to bilateral relations," said Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. At least one Chinese travel company, Tuniu, has already stopped sales of South Korean trips with immediate effect. The online travel firm said in a statement Friday that it objected to the THAAD deployment and a decision by the Lotte conglomerate to make land available for the missiles. South Korea's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said it had learned that Chinese authorities summoned representatives of travel agencies in Beijing on Thursday and instructed them to stop selling South Korean tours from March 15. "The instruction was unofficial but China has a tendency not to give official orders for sanctions," said Wang Gi-young, a director at the ministry. It wasn't immediately clear if other Chinese tour operators were joining Tuniu in its boycott. China's National Tourism Administration didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. The stakes are high. Of the 17 million people who visited South Korea last year, eight million were Chinese, according to data from the Korea Tourism Organization. China is also South Korea's biggest trading partner, accounting for about a quarter of its exports. "Korea is a lot more dependent on China than the other way around," said Krystal Tan of Capital Economics. "China is a much larger economy." Investors are clearly worried about the escalation in tension and the potential fallout on tourism. Shares in South Korean companies with big duty-free businesses plunged in Seoul on Friday. Hotel Shilla dropped 13% and Shinsegae fell 5%. Beijing has previously threatened Lotte, a South Korean retail group with a major presence in China, for providing land for THAAD. "Lotte stands to lose Chinese customers and the Chinese market. That would be a very large slice out of their business pie," China's official news agency, Xinhua, said in a commentary last month. In recent months, Beijing has also placed restrictions on South Korean cosmetics and even denied visas to two South Korean classical artists who were set to perform in China.

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) offers huge business and investment opportunities to all countries and global institutions. Since the project was formally launched in April 2015, it has opened up multiple businesses in physical infrastructure, transportation, energy, and trade, and even more. The best opportunities exist for Pakistan’s investment partners. China could motivate Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan to invest in the CPEC-related projects. In the Middle East, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are traditional and sizeable investors in Pakistan. Both countries are part of the One Belt One Road (OBOR) and have special ties with Pakistan. They could play a significant role in CPEC investment. The United Kingdom, Germany, France, Turkey, Russia, Romania have joined the CPEC. Other investors from Europe such as Switzerland and Norway should also show interests in CPEC projects. In East Asia, Japan is an investor in Pakistan, and in the past, it has played a pivotal role in investment in Pakistan especially in the auto sector in the 1990s. Since then, unfortunately Japan’s investments in Pakistan have rather declined. In the past decade, Japan did not invest for a variety of reasons, which need to be revived. As Japan is a leader in investment in Asia, its participation in the CPEC-related business and investment would open many other windows for other investors. This would also revive traditional strong ties between Pakistan and Japan and would create a balanced view of Pakistan in East Asia instead of heavily leaning toward China for investment. A diversified investment policy of Pakistan would be more attractive for investors from East Asia and within the parameters of “Vision East Asia’’ policy adopted in 2004, but it largely remained inactive. Pakistan cannot not afford to bypass South Korea in its CPEC vision. China came much later to construct the Gwadar Port in 2001. It was the South Korean multinational Daewoo, which offered loan of US$ 630 million and constructed Pakistan’s first limited access motorway between Lahore and Islamabad (M-2) from 1993-97. It was a time when no donor, country or a global financial institution, was interested in that project. Pakistani economy was facing an economic crunch at that time and largely depended on donors. The first PML-N Government faced that hardship. The motorway contract was signed in 1992. The length of the project was 339 km. The construction of the project within five years, when four governments including two care-take government were changed, wrote history of speedy and exemplary projects in Pakistan. Motorway was the largest project built in Pakistan after Tarbela and Mangla dams in the 1960s. When the motorway was build in Pakistan, there was no vision of a motorway existed in South Asia and Central Asia. The motorway was a shining example of cooperation between Pakistan and the South Korean private sector. In fact, CPEC vision was practically laid down by the Lahore-Islamabad motorway. The rest is an extension. Therefore, South Korea should take high stakes in CPEC projects especially in the field of motorways construction, tunnels, bridges, and transportation. The Lowari tunnel is another monument of South Korean infrastructural development in Pakistan. At the higher level, Pakistani leadership should invite South Korean multinational companies to take part in CPEC projects. South Korea emerged as the second largest source of investment after the United States in Pakistan in 1994. The country was well competing with Japan at that time and laying infrastructural in Pakistan. South Korean role in public transportation was another hallmark for its business participation in Pakistan, which had transformed Pakistani transportation culture. At that point, Chinese investment was non-existent in Pakistan. South Korea opened up the real door for infrastructural development in Pakistan. Its role in Pakistan was commendable in the 1990s. The sudden change of the government on 12 October 1999 was the main reason for the South Korean businessmen’s decline of interest in doing business and investment in Pakistan and, for long, they stayed at the bay and watched the situation. Since the country was returned to normal democracy in 2008 and the incumbent government attained many goals such as wiping out terrorism, improvement of law and order in Karachi, and a number of economic objectives that were achieved, this has paved the way for South Korean investors to come back to Pakistan again and participate in its economic turnaround. An economically stable and politically sound Pakistan could attain many goals and attractive investors from East Asian countries. The CPEC is a window of economic operation to lure investors. The results are in the pipeline and hope the political climate will not be damaged by any misadventure as happened in the past when the motorway momentum was built in the 1990s.

Bizarre TV KOREA HISTORY _ REBUILD INNOVATE South Korea Technology Leader WORLDS BEST AUTOMAKER advexontube.com WORLD TRAVEL (EUROPE, ASIA, AFRICA, AMERICAS..) South Korea’s development over the last half century has been nothing short of spectacular. Fifty years ago, the country was poorer than Bolivia and Mozambique; today, it is richer than New Zealand and Spain, with a per capita income of almost $23,000. For 50 years, South Korea’s economy has grown by an average of seven percent annually, contracting in only two of those years. In 1996, South Korea joined the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the club of rich industrialized countries, and in 2010, it became the first Asian country and the first non-G-7 member to host a G-20 summit. To call South Korea an emerging market, therefore, is a bit of an anachronism. The country is a rich, technologically advanced, mature democracy with an impressive record of innovation, economic reform, and sound leadership. Yet South Korea is not exactly a developed market, either. The value of its exports plus imports (at $1.25 trillion a year) exceeds its national income (at $1.1 trillion). That openness, along with the lack of protection provided by a bloc such as the EU, subjects South Korea to greater market volatility than other major industrialized countries and presents some serious challenges. So, too, does its highly concentrated corporate sector, aging population, and politically dangerous neighborhood. South Korea may well be more dynamic than some developed economies, making it attractive to investors, but it is also much riskier. SO LONG, KOREA DISCOUNT Given South Korea’s extraordinary accomplishments, it is tempting to try to distill the secrets of its success, so that they can be bottled and used elsewhere. But South Korea’s remarkable leap from poverty to riches owes to a unique set of historical circumstances. Soon after the division of the Korean Peninsula, in 1945, South Korea already had in place the building blocks for growth: an educated population, property rights, land reform that boosted productivity, and the institutions of modern capitalism. But then came the Korean War, which devastated the country. Investment did not take off until the country began to rebuild in the 1960s, when the authoritarian president Park Chung-hee (father of the current president, Park Geun-hye) embarked on a set of policy reforms that encouraged domestic saving and opened the economy up to international trade. South Korea’s initial rapid growth was characterized by both political authoritarianism and extensive state intervention in the economy. In the 1970s and 1980s, Seoul channeled massive amounts of capital through subsidies and low-interest-rate loans into trusted family-led chaebol, or conglomerates. These favored firms also enjoyed trade preferences and monopoly rights, among other indulgences extended by the government. Such preferential treatment enabled the chaebol, which today include Hyundai and Samsung, to grow into massive business empires whose brands are now recognized and envied around the world. But the story has a dark side: today, the chaebol’s ongoing dominance poses challenges to regulators seeking to make South Korea’s markets more competitive. And the conglomerates’ historical ties to the country’s early dictators feed resentment among many South Koreans, who regard the businesses as having achieved their dominance unfairly. Thank You! God Bless
