South Korea's Economic Network recently published an article that South Korean shipping companies in January this year, the performance of orders than Japan's shipping companies, one of the reasons is that South Korea's shipbuilding industry is currently in the restructuring period, Japan's shipbuilding enterprises to create an opportunity to go-ahead; in the future In the future period, the competition between South Korean shipping companies and Japanese shipping companies will become even more intense.
