This article examines the ‘Documents owned by the Ethnic Chinese Association of Incheon’ (hereafter: dcai) and looks which light these shed on the economic activities of the ethnic Chinese in Incheon in the mid-1930s. The dcai materials provide important insights into the economic structure and into the activities in which the ethnic Chinese were involved in Incheon during the 1930s. I have reviewed the economic roles played by the ethnic Chinese residents of Incheon in the mid-1930s by using dcai materials. Previous studies have revealed that the economic activities of the ethnic Chinese in Korea in the 1930s diminished, and imports from China decreased as a result of the anti-Chinese riots, which occurred in July 1931. In this paper, I have shown that the ethnic Chinese in Incheon were no exception. The amount of remittances that Chinese merchants sent back to China decreased considerably, and import goods from China, particularly from Shanghai, also went through a sudden decrease. Consequently, the ethnic Chinese representative commercial firms went bankrupt in succession. (This article is in English.)
