ABSTRACT

Although there have been various kinds of regional development and subsidy programs of central government for lagged regions, it has been pointed out that collective effectiveness level is low due to the lack of integration system and inefficient distribution of subsidy budgets. Also, it has been said that lagged regions themselves could not accumulate their internal capability to escape from their poverty, who have been tamed by external subsidy from the central government. Fortunately, as Participatory Government is strongly driving national balanced development policy, necessity of integrated and efficient regional development policy is being highlighted again nowadays. The problem is that there is no practical solution suggested at the moment to achieve regional development program integration. This study tried to suggest policy directions and detailed process for successful integration of regional development schemes based on the framework of New Public Management, which is widely suggested as a theoretic background of governmental innovation and market based entrepreneurial government. From the theoretic analysis, some implications, such as competition of regional development programs, choice of local government and their customer satisfaction, and necessity of institutionalization, are derived. Based on the mechanism of NPM, policy suggestions are derived with the respects of; necessity of diagnosis for local capacity and capability; process for integrating regional development programs; total evaluation framework for performance review and feedback. We believe that this study can give exploratory policy implication and future direction for the integration of regional development programs.
