Exports play an important role in Korea s economy and industry. Korea s share in world trade is also increasing. Governments and trade organizations are making great efforts to promote exports. However, since SMEs lack resources of enterprises, SMEs have a lot of difficulties in increasing exports compared to large enterprises.

As a result, four factors such as overseas market information, price and cost, competitiveness and regulation of importing country were derived.
