Trade conflict between Japan and Korea - a chance for Swiss exporters

How current developments in the Korean MEM industry can lead to unique opportunities for Swiss companies.

Webinar: Trade conflict Korea - Japan

The MEM industry in Korea is going through a period of great changes. The trade conflict between Japan and Korea, for instance, has resulted in strict policy measures by the Korean government and is merely one of the many factors that currently shape the face of the industry. However, where there is change, there is opportunity and the ongoing developments in the Korean MEM industry present Swiss MEM manufacturers with a lot of possibilities.

The recording of the webinar will give you a comprehensive report which analyses the main triggers that currently drive the Korean MEM industry and discuss the therein identified strategic windows for Swiss companies. The report serves as an indicator where individual Swiss MEM producers should look for market chances and dig deeper to identify the opportunities presently occurring in Korea.
