Cooperation with Other Organizations
KOTRA actively engages in international cooperation with similar organizations by exchanging ideas and sharing information. Seminars and workshops are hosted to promote better communication and render assistance to foreign trade and investment missions that visit Korea. Such close ties with relevant foreign organizations will enhance mutual understanding of different cultures to the benefit of each country's economy.
While working abroad, KOTRA personnel gain insights into world markets and therefore can provide the kind of first-hand inside information its customers need. In order to share KOTRA's expertise more effectively, KOTRA Academy was launched as a professional learning center in the field of international business. All courses are focused on field training and curriculums are flexibly arranged in accordance with customers' needs.
