A Vital Agency Aiding Korea’s Economic Development
Korea’s remarkable economic growth over the past several decades has been accompanied by an equally stunning
expansion of Korean exports to global markets, which has been the major growth engine driving the nation’s
prosperity. At the vanguard of Korea’s export economy is the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Corporation
(KOTRA), charged with promoting the country’s trade, attracting foreign investment, and forming cooperative
technological and industrial partnerships with leading global corporations and organizations.
