Globalization has dissolved away the barriers of physical distance and time with transactions as technology advances. This increases the mobility of goods, services, labor, and capital between countries. It has also had an influence on culture, society, and institutions, which Professor Jun will address while reviewing the larger globalization process.

Additionally, she will show the relationship between trade and geographical distance. According to the analysis, bilateral trade volume decreases with the geographical distance. This distance effect is very stable, and strengthens overtime. She will provide an explanation of this phenomenon and its implications.

In this presentation, Professor Jun will talk about whether the distance effect during globalization is different in Korea's case. Her talk will help improve the understanding of the role of geographic distance on international transaction.
