Intro to Invest Korea
Invest KOREA provides the best system for successful investment by communicating in real time
with foreign investors and sharing information with them.
Invest KOREA (IK), Korea's national investment promotion agency, was established as part of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) to support the entry and establishment of foreign businesses in Korea.
We provide comprehensive services for foreign businesses, including consultations, assistance with investment notification and corporate establishment, support for business activities in Korea and grievance resolution.
Invest KOREA also holds various investment promotion activities abroad.
