The three major nations of Northeast Asia, namely, Japan, South Korea and China, collectively produce 22 percent of the world’s total GDP. … With North Korea added to these three nations, however, the Northeast Asian region is plagued with complex problems such as an ideological confrontation long after the Cold War … East Asia which is separated by the Genkai Sea as well as the 38th parallel does not have a regional transportation system with high reliability and efficiency, making a major bottleneck against the expansion of regional trade.
