1)After the IMF crisis, branch offices have been abolished and reorganized in Korea. As a result, the position of Seoul in Korean urban system has jumped up than before. Conversely, the positions of local cities have been lowered.
2)Viewing from the transportation network, it is not clear whether the IMF crisis has affected the local cities of not. The networks of highway bus transportation, railroad transportation and road access have been much improved within the two decades.
3)The labor market in Daegu has been strongly affected by the IMF crisis. Because the local economy of Daegu was heavily depend upon the textile industry, and the textile industry in Korea was strongly export oriented. The scale of establishment has shrunk, and the full time male blue-workers have been replaced by the casual workers. But in Daegu, the replacement process from the full-time workers to the casual workers has not seen, but only the female blue-workers in the textile industry have been decreased.
4)New location of industry into the rural areas has been promoted by the IMF crisis. But the net effects are rather fragmentary.
5)Production areas in agriculture have grown during the high economic growth era in Korea. Migration from metropolitan areas to rural areas has been temporarily increased, but at a total, the number of migrants was not so much.
6)Regional development policies promoted by the local governments have been activated since the IMF crisis, but this can not be separated from the devolution process after 1995.
