“We also plan to provide one-stop trading consulting services and upgrade the association’s services,” he added.
The association said it will participate in the government-led project to turn Jamsil Sports Complex areas into a global MICE center.
The trade organization expects that the Jamsil project will create synergy with its World Trade Center Seoul -- Coex -- in Samseong-dong.
KITA said it also plans to foster 500,000 small companies, single entrepreneurs and start-ups by 2030.
