- The recent growth of Korean Economy has resulted in uneven development between urban and rural areas. Future development planning must be directed toward the functional integration of a local urban center with its rural surroundings forming a self-contained region as a whole. The present study explores a framework for the regional analysis. This can yield information relevant to the planning purposes. Four dimensions of a region should be the basics of the research framework; potential resources, characteristics of the settlement system, internal and external regional linkages, development needs. Namwon region is the common geographical combination of city-county units found throughout the nation. Field trips and questionnaire surveys conducted in the summer 1986.
1. Potential Resources; The study identifies those resources having more advantages than other regions. The montane environment of the eastern half of the region provides materials for the development of wooden-craft and stone industries. These can offer job opportunities for semi-skilled and unskilled labor forces. The Giumji Plain on western part is potential for horticultural development. The cultural assets such as Gwanghanru Pavilion in conjunction with nearby Jirisan National Park are attractive to tourists.
