- The world is now moving toward the goal of economic prosperity freeing itself from political and ideological confrontation. As the two super power countries in the Northeast Asian region, Soviet Union and China, begin to adopt market principle gradually in their economic activities,
international cooperation in the Region emerges to attract new concerns.
Econo-geographical conditions of the Northeast Asian region countries is conceived best to take advantage of economic cooperation, compared to such regionalization economies in the world as the European Community(EC), and the North America Free Trade Area(NAFI'A). The potentials of economic cooperation in the Northeast Asia region have long been appreciated due to the geographical proximity to each other and economic complementarity in terms of natural resources, labor, technology and capital.
Economic cooperation necessarily brings about increased demand for transportation and communication. Without adequate supply of transportation means, the bloc economy can not be flourished. The coordinated transportation system in the Northeast Asia countries will contribute not only to the advancement of its regional economy but also to strengthening the ties with the fairly solid EC bloc economy.
