South Korea: Expanding Business Opportunities

South Korea remains a beacon of U.S. interests as our adamant ally for the last 70 years and currently our sixth-largest trading partner. Following the signing of the revamped U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement last month, the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) announces the opening of their 8th U.S. trade office in Atlanta, giving Georgia and the Southeast even more access to the powerhouse of Asia.

This is good news for metro Atlanta, which boasts an estimated Korean population of over 120,000 and many Korean community organizations and companies. On October 26, we will celebrate the opening of KOTRA and an expert panel will discuss how the new KOTRA trade office will benefit both Georgia and South Korea.
