Switzerland Global Enterprise and KOTRA (Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency) invite you to the “Event: South Korea – A fast growing economy!”, taking place on September 17 in Zurich. Secure your place now and benefit from an inspiring, instructive program!

Impulse Event South Korea

South Korea has been one of the fasted growing economies of the world since the 1950`s. It posseses a significant domestic market with a population of 50 million and is close to the bigger Asian markets of China and Japan. Entry opportunities exist a lot but require a solid entry strategy and understanding of the market.

The event offers you a comprehensive overview of the South Korean market. What makes it special? What are the current business trends and what is exceptional about their business mentality? What should you know when it comes to your internationalization project and planned market entry? These and many other questions will be answered at the event. You will also learn from Swiss companies in the cosmetic and MEM sector that have already dared to export, what they have learned, where obstacles lurk and what opportunities should be seized. The event will be rounded off with a networking aperitif, providing the ideal platform for exchanging ideas and making new business contacts.

Additionally, our country specialists from the regions and from Switzerland will be available for free-of-charge, individual consultation sessions prior to the event. You can book your appointment by registering for the event.
