Abstract

초록

한국과 중앙아시아 국가들 간의 외교 관계는 1992년에 성공적으로 수립되었는데, 이것은 이미 지금까지 27 년 동안 발전해 왔다. 계속되는 양국 관계의 심화와 함께 한국과 중앙아시아 국가들 간의 경제 및 무역 관계가 강화되었고, 양국간 교류 빈도도 현저히 증가했다. 아시아에서 네 번째로 큰 경제 대국인 한국은 중앙아시아에서의 경제 및 외교 전략에서 더 큰 잠재력을 보이고 있다. 특히 한국은 2013년 '유라시아 이니셔티브'와 2017년 '신북정책'을 제안해 중앙아시아 국가들이 중요한 파트너로 평가받았고, 보다 적극적인 경제협력 전략이 추진될 것으로 보인다. 따라서 향후 한국과 중앙아시아 국가 간 경제협력이 뚜렷하게 발전할 것으로 보는 것이 타당하다.
The diplomatic relations between South Korea and Central Asian countries was successfully established in 1992, which has already seen a 27-year development so far. Along with the continuous deepening of bilateral relations, the economic and trade relations between South Korea and Central Asian countries have been strengthened, and the frequency of bilateral exchanges have also remarkably increased. As the fourth largest economy in Asia, South Korea shows greater potential in its economic and diplomatic strategies in Central Asia. Especially, South Korea proposed the “Eurasia Initiative” in 2013 and the “New Northern Policy” in 2017, in which Central Asian countries are regarded as important partners, and a more active economic cooperation strategy would be promoted. Hence, it is reasonable to believe that the economic cooperation between South Korea and Central Asian countries is expected to develop clearly in the future.
