ABSTRACT

This paper tries to identify Busan's level of urban infrastructure when it is compared to the other sister cities around the world. Busan has a strong competitiveness in fields of the Shipping Logistics Treatment(SLT) and Information Technology(IT) among six subdivided fields, but other fields are ranked below the average level. Therefore, for the higher competitiveness, Busan Metropolitan city has to have bringing-up policy relating to Shipping Logistics Treatment and Information Technology, and also, some urban infrastructure. For examples first, new international airport allows strategically for Busan to make world city. Existing airport is so narrow in comparison with other international airports in the world, and there are some risks in nature and treating volume to meet the Southern needs. Second, world class theater is needed to have competitiveness to perform a lot of cultural tasks. Finally, more then anything else the citizens mind to the world is more important for bringing up the competitiveness rather than to have world class urban infrastructure.
