Economic mission to visit Romania, Hungary, Turkey


A South Korean delegation of government officials and businesspeople is to depart Wednesday for Romania, Hungary and Turkey to seek greater economic cooperation, a business organization said Tuesday.

The 70-member delegation is scheduled to discuss cooperation in the trade, information technology and energy sectors during the trip through September 8, the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) said.

Romania and Hungary became members of the European Union, while Turkey is actively seeking to join the EU. “The trip to the Eastern European countries will help South Korean companies shed new light on the Eastern European markets and set up substantial economic cooperation systems with them,” a KCCI official said. The economic mission includes Kim Sang-yeol, vice chairman of the KCCI, Lee Nam-doo, president of Doosan Heavy Industries Co. and Oh Young-ho, vice minister of commerce, energy and industry. (
