South Korea is B.C.’s 4th largest goods export market, with over $2.1 billion in goods exports in 2020. The Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA) covers virtually all aspects of Canada-South Korean trade, including trade in goods and services, investment, government procurement, non-tariff barriers, environment and labour cooperation, and other areas of economic activity. The CKFTA puts B.C. companies on a level playing field against key competitors who already enjoyed preferential access to the South Korean market. When the CKFTA is fully implemented, it will remove more than 98% of South Korea’s tariff lines on Canada’s products, including many of B.C.’s key exports. Sectoral opportunities in South Korea include agriculture and processed food, consumer products, forestry and wood products, Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), sustainable technologies and more.
If you are interested in the South Korean market or want to learn more about how the CKFTA can reduce your costs and make your goods and services more competitive, then this webinar is for you.
Learn about B.C.-Korea trade relations, what B.C.’s Trade and Investment reps in Korea can do for you, business etiquette/cultural practices to take note of, CKFTA implementation/export issues, and much more!
