KGCCI Half-Year Economic Outlook 2019










In cooperation with Incheon Free Economic Zone (IFEZ), we cordially invite you to the KGCCI Half-Year Economic Outlook 2019.

The KGCCI Half-Year Economic Outlook gives you exclusive insight into the economic development in Korea, with facts & figures and food for thought for your businesses.

Korea as a high-tech country, with its chaebol power and its strength in implementation has been an attractive location for business and investment for many years. Economically, however, South Korea seems to drift into a more difficult situation right now: Bank of Korea keeps on revising the growth rate for 2019, job growth remains incremental, and major industries like construction are suffering. The trade war between the US and China and now also between Japan and Korea make Korean companies and their German suppliers feel the heat even more.

Innovation, new growth industries, digital transformation, and a fast time-to-market environment is crucial for the economic development of the country.

Part 1: Outlook on bilateral relations and the economic development

  • Mr. Peter Winkler, Deputy Head of Mission, German Embassy
  • Ms. Juliana Lee, Managing Director and Chief Economist EM Asia, Deutsche Bank

In Part 2: Panel Discussion on the power and potential limitations of regulatory frameworks and legislation and its impact on foreign direct investment.

  • Dr. Jongseok Kim, Member of National Assembly
  • Mr. Woosuk Kenneth Choi, Editor/Strategic Planning Desk, The Chosun Ilbo
  • Dr. Kang Choi, Vice President/Principal Fellow, The Asian Institute for Policy Studies

The Half-Year Economic Outlook will be followed by a networking reception and a dinner buffet.

The event will be held in English.

Should you have any questions, please contact Ms. Sun-Hi Kim, / 02-37804-659.

We look forward to seeing you after the summer break at the KGCCI Half- Year Economic Outlook 2019.
