Trade Winds Asia will take place in Korea, a country with a sophisticated and modern economy that offers excellent opportunities for U.S. firms interested in penetrating the Asian market. The Korean USD 1 trillion economy is heavily weighted on international trade. As Korea continues to move towards more technology intensive industries, U.S. companies will find market opportunities in leading industries such as life sciences (medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology), industrial chemicals, IT, nano technology, aerospace and defense, energy, environmental technology, and transportation. U.S. companies are already partnering with local Korean industry to expand market opportunity from Korea to third-country markets including ASEAN, the Middle East and other markets in the Asia-Pacific region. Given Korea’s strong shipping and air cargo infrastructure it is not only a market for U.S. goods and services but a hub for eventual expansion to other markets as well. If you are new to Asia or are looking to tap into new markets, our signature Trade Winds Forum is the ideal launching point for expansion throughout the region.
