Since the establishment of our agency, Invest KOREA has successfully launched projects that connect foreign investors with promising Korean companies and investment opportuni- ties. To start off, there’s Invest Korea Week, the country’s largest international investment promotion event. Then there’s the Job Fair for Foreign-Invested Companies, which helps international companies recruit talent Korean jobseekers. Of course we have Get To Know Korea, a cultural event where we take members of the foreign business community and their family members around Korea. And we have now proudly added one more achievement to our resume—the launch of Invest Korea Market Place, also known as IKMP.
So what is IKMP? It’s a platform that connects investors to over 200 Korean projects looking to receive for- eign investment through M&A or equity investments in Korea. It also contains a list of public development projects led by local governments and Free Economic Zones. Each project has been carefully monitored and evaluated by a team of consultants. These experts are well versed in industry trends and have screened each project to make sure that they meet the standards of IKMP. Furthermore, we’re working together with external organizations like banks and financial institutions to locate projects with potential so that we can identity 500 projects by the end of the year. Through this process, Invest KOREA is playing a more active role in identifying and responding to current market trends for foreign investors.
If you’re interested in learning more about IKMP, you can access the database on Invest KOREA’s website (www.investkorea.org) at any time. Through this platform, we hope that you’ll find doing business easier than ever. Thank you.
