Acquisition of stocks or shares of Korean corporations (Article 2.(1).4.(a) of the Foreign Investment
Promotion Act, FIPA)
◦A foreign national purchasing stocks or shares of a Korean corporation (including a Korean
corporation in the process of incorporation. Hereinafter the same shall apply) or a company run
by a Korean national, for the purpose of establishing a continuous economic relationship with and
participating in the management of the said Korean corporation or company.
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) – investment by foreign companies in overseas subsidiaries or
joint ventures – has a traditional reliance on natural resource use and extraction,particularly
agriculture, mineral and fuel production. Though this balance has shifted in recent years, the poorest countries still receive a disproportionate amount of investment flows into their natural resource sectors.
Secondly, seeking out paid work should always be the choice of women themselves.
Policies adopted by conservative government administrations such as workfare, which
force social assistance recipients into the workforce, ìÖcreate a source of low-wage and
free labour by providing subsidies to the private sector and forcing recipients to volunteer
in exchange for assistanceî.
These polices are based on a distrust of those living in
poverty, and do not empower, but malign people into working for pay.
