Christchurch Event – Opportunities in Korea

Opportunities for Your Business in South Korea

South Korea is New Zealand’s sixth largest export market – and growing. The free trade agreement has now been in place for three years and tariff cut benefits are starting to deliver real advantages for exporters, offering significant and expanding opportunities for New Zealand businesses – from trade and investment to education and tourism.

Join us for a seminar and networking event to hear about opportunities for your business in South Korea.

Each event will begin with 30 minutes of refreshments and networking, followed by a one-hour seminar. Philip will be joined at this event by a successful local business to share their experiences with engaging in the Korean market. There will be a Q&A session at the end for those who have questions
