"Tokyo's export restrictions are heavy and focus on efforts to curb South Korea's economic growth, just at a time when Korea plans to move forward fast," he says.
"If this is what Japan intends, it will never succeed."
"South Korean firms have lost confidence in their cooperation with Japan, and opt to diversify the supply route of necessary materials or localize related production
“ I warned earlier that the Japanese economy will eventually suffer a lot."
