According to Daegu City, 200 people from Daegu and Gyeongbuk export companies and related organizations attended the event to hear lectures from the head of KOTRA's Latin America office (Mexico City) and the head of its North America office (New York), and to discuss with experts on China, Japan and Aisa on export companies' breakthrough in global market.

The City added, "We would strengthen the monitoring of changes in trade environment to promote regional exports in the future, and would support the advancement to emerging markets such as the New Southern markets (ASEAN and India) and the New Northern markets (Russia and Eurasia) as a way of diversifying export markets."
