Other local authorities invited also hosted a pitching event, letting the expo attendees learn more on local businesses headquartered in each district.
KOAA-GTT Show opened an online trade fair session through which virtual meetings to help match 130 global buyers from 37 countries that KOTRA invited to local participants took place. World’s renowned auto manufacturers and parts suppliers such as US’ GM and Dormand Products, Japan’s Toyota, and Kirchhoff Automotive Deutschland put their names on the guests list and 60 percent of the global business partners were proved to be auto-parts vendors supplying products largely used for after care service or maintenance from emerging markets in South East Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Surveying market demand for research and development, KOTRA ran a special corner of the event, called ‘R&D Partnering Zone’ where tech-mentorship programs were available to visitors on site.
