Since the establishment of diplomatic ties between the Republic of Korea
(ROK) and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in August 1992, relations
between the two countries have improved and advanced dramatically in all
domains. Trade between the two countries, for example, grew from United
States dollars (USD) 6.4 billion in 1992 to USD 215.1 billion in 2012, while
the number of visitors and tourists grew from 130,000 to 6,910,000 over the
same period. In response to the rapid expansion of economic and social
exchange, policymakers of the two countries have similarly consolidated and deepened their
political and institutional relations. What started out as a relationship of friendly cooperation in
1992 evolved into “a partnership for a common vision of the 21st century,” as remarked by
former South Korean President Kim, Dae-jung on his visit to China in 1998 and later affirmed as
“a comprehensive partnership for cooperation” in the remarks of another former South Korean
president, Roh, Moo-hyun, on his visit to China in 2003. During former South Korean President
Lee, Myung-bak’s term, he described the relationship as “a partnership for strategic cooperation”
while visiting China in 2008
