A seventy-member business delegation, comprising of more than 50 Korean companies in the fields of trade, investment and tourism, led by the Korean Deputy Minister of Knowledge Economy, will be attending the Sri Lanka Expo 2012 which commenced today in Colombo.
The visit is organized and coordinated by the Embassy of Sri Lanka in Korea in association with the Sri Lanka Export Development Board.
The Korea Importers Association (KOIMA), Korea’s forefront business organization representing the sole interest of Korean importers, will be visiting Sri Lanka for the first time. KOIMA and 15 member companies will be joining the delegation along with the Korea Chamber of Commerce & Industries (KCCI). KCCI is Korea’s largest business chamber and will also be accompanying their member companies. In addition, a few government officials from the Ministry of Knowledge Economy and a large number of individual Korean companies will also be in attendance at the Expo.
KOIMA, which has approximately 8,500 Korean member companies, will be signing a MOU with the Sri Lanka Export Development Board on Wednesday (28) at the EXPO, with a view to enhancing Sri Lanka’s exports to the Korean market.
This delegation is expected to be the single largest Korean business delegation ever to have visited Sri Lanka. It would pave the way to enhance commercial ties between Korea and Sri Lanka and form lasting relations between the two nations.
