Products from Malaysia are displayed at the Korea-Asean & India Business Week 2021 exhibition held at COEX in Gangnam, southern Seoul, on Tuesday.
The two-day event is organized by the Korea International Trade Association (KITA) and the state-owned Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (Kotra). Some 1,000 people including company representatives and experts are attending the event to discuss trade opportunities between Korea, Asean and India in the post-Covid-19 era.
“Some 18,000 Korean companies have advanced to the ‘new southern regions’ [Asean and India], which is not only become they are a global production center, but also because they are gaining attention as an economic growth engine,” said Christopher Koo, KITA chairman. “We need to create a cooperative model where Korea and the new southern countries can flourish together in the post-Covid-19 era.” [YONHAP]
