Next week’s seminar / exhibition is being organised as part of a roadshow from the Korean Trade & Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) and aims to offer Irish exporters clear and in-depth knowledge of the processes required for imports, exports and using the EU-Korea Free Trade Agreement (FTA). Dr. Mary Hogan of the Irish Management Institute will be joined on the expert speaker panel by trade advisors from KOTRA and also a number people from Irish companies who will describe successful case studies in importing from and investing in Korea.

A member of G20, South Korea’s economy is ranked 11th globally, yet in 2014 it was the world’s 5th largest exporters and 7th largest importer. This event promises to be a key networking opportunity for those looking to build networks in one of the world’s more innovative, advanced and open market economies.
