Do Business: Opportunities in South Korea

5 March
Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, Brunnsgatan 2, Stockholm

There has never been a better time for Swedish SME’s to approach the Asian market. Welcome to a breakfast seminar focusing on business opportunities in a market that has been one of the fastest growing economies for a number of years – South Korea.

Asia is currently powering the world’s GDP development, generating over 50% of global growth and over 50% of the world's population lives in the region. 22 of the world's 37 megacities, comprising of more than 10 million inhabitants, are situated in Asia. By 2020, the region will have the largest middle-class population in the world. Consumption in Asia has doubled in the past decade, recently surpassing Europe, and within 5 years is expected to overtake the United States as the world's largest consumer market.

South Korea is an important driving force in the Asian economy, however for most Swedish companies the country is still a relatively unknown market. The media mostly reports about their neighbor North Korea. Many are unaware that South Korea is in fact the world's eleventh largest economy and Sweden's third largest exporting country in Asia. There are exciting opportunities for Swedish companies to do business in South Korea

2019 is the anniversary year for 60 years of diplomatic relations between the countries, which will be highlighted both in South Korea and in Sweden.

Areas that will be covered in the seminar:

  • Geopolitics in East Asia and the relationship with North Korea
  • The Moon administration and its policies, impact on society and the labor market
  • Business opportunities for Swedish companies and planned events in South Korea during the year
  • Success factors and concrete business advice to succeed in the country

Confirmed Speakers:

Lee Jeong-kyu, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Sweden

Jakob Hallgren, Ambassador of Sweden to the Republic of Korea

Johan Chun, Business Sweden, Country Manager South Korea

Johannes Asplund, BabyBjörn, Business Development Manager 

The seminar is arranged in collaboration with Business Sweden, the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Sweden and the Swedish Embassy in the Republic of Korea.
