Your first contact in Korea:
The Korean-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KGCCI) is your first contact in Korea. The chamber promotes economic relations between Germany and Korea since its foundation in 1981. With the steady rise in bilateral trade to over 20 bil. USD and German investments of more than 10 bil. USD in Korea, the activities of KGCCI and the demand for its professional services have increased accordingly. This is reflected by the growing membership of actually more than 500 and a full-time staff of 20 - all bilingual - professionals.
Germany is Korea's sixth most important trade partner. Around 40% of all EU exports to Korea come from Germany. The EU-Korea FTA, which is effective since July 2011, is thus especially beneficial for German companies and will further increase business opportunities in Korea.
