- The once-promising offshore plant industry in South Korea is on the verge of collapse. There are both internal and external reasons for the sudden rise and fall of this now troubled industry. This study focuses on what went wrong within the South Korean government. It examines how the offshore-plant industrial policy has been implemented since its inception in 2012. Using a modified version of Matlands Ambiguity-Conflict matrix, this study explains the way in which the combination of policy goal ambiguity and organizational conflict between and within government agencies has caused the policy drift and failure.
This study finds that the offshore-plant industrial policy has undergone three different but related stages from symbolic to experimental to political implementation over the past five years. Varying degrees of goal ambiguity andorganizational conflicts have resulted in such shifts, which in turn have made the government miss the opportunities to correct earlier policy errors in the next stages. This study explains the unique problems inherent in the offshore-plant industrial policy. At the same time, it reveals the common problems prevalent in South Koreas government-led industrial policy: the lack of planning, deliberation, coordination, and collaboration within the government, let alone outside of it.
