First Vice Finance Minister Bang Ki-sun will deliver opening remarks at the event. Also, the ministry said it would jointly run the Korea Climate Change Response Project Promotion Hall at the 'Global Programing Conference' held by the Green Climate Fund GCF.

According to The Korea Economic Daily Global Edition, Executives and major shareholders of South Korea’s listed companies will be obligated to disclose their share transaction plans at least 30 days in advance amid concerns that the move could hurt free market principles and increase market volatility. The Financial Services Commission FSC said on Monday it will adopt a pre-disclosure system to prevent unfair insider trading and protect minor shareholders from heavy losses when volume trading occurs without their knowledge. The financial regulator said it aims to get the new measure enacted at the National Assembly by year-end. “We know there’s great market interest in this matter. We’ll soon submit our proposal on an amended Capital Market Act to the National Assembly,” the FSC said. Any executive or a major shareholder who owns more than 10% of stocks with voting rights or those who exercise important management rights such as executive appointments or dismissals would be subject to the new regulations. Non-major shareholders will also be required to make public their transaction plans if they plan to buy or sell 1% or more of total outstanding shares, or if the value of their transactions exceeds 5 billion won $3.6 million. The information they must disclose includes the purpose and timing of the trading, volumes and expected prices of shares. Under the current law, listed firms’ executives and major shareholders are required to make public their massive share sales and purchases after transactions are completed. The FSC said on Monday there would be some exceptions to the new mandatory disclosure rules. If any insider information is judged insignificant or non-disclosure is expected to have little market impact, executives and major shareholders will not be required to make their plans public beforehand. Other exceptions include cases where it is difficult to disclose information in advance due to the nature of transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions M&A, inheritance, stock dividends and trading by state pension funds, it said. If the disclosure of a share transaction plan is expected to lead to significant market volatility and cause heavy losses to those shareholders involved, they can change or withdraw their share transaction plans. Insider trading, a transaction of a company's securities by individuals with access to confidential or material non-public information about the company, has often been criticized as taking advantage of such privileged access is considered a breach of the individual's fiduciary duty. Public calls for strengthened rules against unfair insider trading have been growing since Alex Young-joon Ryu, a co-CEO nominee of Kakao Corp., stepped down in January as his earlier disposal of $39 million worth of shares in Kakao’s fintech unit Kakao Pay Corp. met with strong backlash. About a month after Kakao Pay’s market debut, Ryu and seven other executives of the company exercised their stock options and dumped a combined 440,000 shares in after-hours trade. The block sale caused the company's shares to fall significantly, inviting harsh criticism from its labor union and minority shareholders and raising a management ethics controversy. In March, the FSC banned CEOs and executives from selling their shares for at least six months after exercising stock options when the company goes public. According to the Securities and Futures Commission, among the 274 reported cases of unfair trade over the past five years, transactions taking advantage of undisclosed information accounted for 43.4% or 119 cases. The Korea Listed Companies Association, however, said the new law the FSC intends to introduce could be abused, severely hurting large-scale share transactions. “If the purpose of the new rules is to prevent unfair and illegal insider trading, reporting transaction plans only to the Korea Exchange or financial regulators in advance will be sufficient, just like the US and Japan,” said an association official. Investment banking officials said the expected increase in market volatility as a result of pre-disclosure would discourage investors from participating in large-scale block deals. “A pre-disclosure might not protect minor shareholders as much as expected. Potential bad news could trigger short selling, which is as bad or even worse for small investors as they have nothing to do to prevent a sharp share decline,” said an industry official.

According to Pulse by Maeil Business News Korea, South Korea’s chip and battery sectors are expected to benefit most from the U.S.-led Indo-Pacific Economic Framework IPEF that focuses on trade, supply chain, clean economy, and fair economy. According to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy on Monday, IPEF participating countries including Korea, the United States, and Japan reached consensus on ministerial statements for each of the four pillars – trade, supply chain, clean economy, and fair economy. The consensus was made at the first official in-person ministerial meeting on Sept. 8 in Los Angeles where Korea’s Trade Minister Ahn Duk-geun attended. The IPEF that counters China amid intensifying rivalry between Washington and Beijing is expected to allow Korea to benefit from the joining of supply chain in advanced areas like chips and batteries as well as in contents exports. But Seoul faces the difficult challenge of persuading Beijing to sustain economic cooperation with the country’s biggest export market. “IPEF is participated by resource-rich countries like Australia and Indonesia and technology powerhouses like the U.S. and Japan,” said Jang Mi-hwa, head of IPEF at Korea’s trade ministry. “Cooperation in supply chain will be possible for the stabilization of supply chain of our key industries like chips and batteries.” Australia accounts for the largest 55 percent of world’s lithium production and is considered a key partner for the stabilization of secondary battery supply chain. IPEF members can exchange reserves at times of emergency, according to foreign media reports. “The 14 nations in the U.S.-led IPEF will consider creating a formal system for sharing semiconductor devices, medical products and other vital supplies during international emergencies,” Nikkei said. Market watchers noted that a system that allows stock exchanges in times of emergency like a currency swap will help diversify and stabilize supply chain in Korean industries. The Korean government will be able to seek stable supply for key minerals in chips and battery sectors through IPEF on top of U.S.-led Mineral Supply Partnership MSP. The ministerial consensus also includes the countries sharing supply chain-related information and establishing a joint response and early warning system. The members aim to share efforts to resolve supply chain bottleneck and expand distribution infrastructure. In trade, new regulations will be made related to digital economy, which will benefit Korea that has seen a surge in content exports like dramas and films over the past several years but in absence of data transfer or standardization in content trade. “It is affirmative that the consensus contains efforts to accelerate digital trade such as cross-border data transfers rather than opening of markets through lowering of tariffs,” said Ahn Chang-yong, director of FTA policy planning at the trade ministry. “Korean companies will be able to advance into ASEAN market.” By Song Min-geun and Lee Eun-joo Copyrights Pulse by Maeil Business News Korea.

Furthermore, investors can virtually experience the locations of free economic zone, and see Korea from a multi-faceted perspectives. Notably, the Busan Expo promotion zone will be set up to publicize Busan, the candidate city for the 2030 World Expo. The promotion will be coupled with strengths of Korea and Busan , thereby giving an impression that Busan is suitable for holding the Expo to high levels from the Chinese government and enterprises. In the mean time, the Korean Product Promotion Zone will display products from around 50 commodity companies in parallel with online promotion using the Chinese chatting app WeChat, focusing the attention of Chinese buyers and consumers. Jang Sang-hyun, head of the KOTRA's Invest KOREA said, 'For Korea to participate as a guest of honor nation in the CIFIT will be a great opportunity to expand cooperation in bilateral trade and investment," adding, "Marking the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two, we will step up our cooperation with Chinese government and add fresh fuel to the trade-investment vitalization."
