South Korea

With the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA), British Columbia and Korea enjoy strong bilateral relationships and extensive business connections, particularly trade in goods such as coal, copper, unwrought aluminum, and wood products including wood pulp. South Korea’s technology-intensive economy presents opportunities for trade and partnership in additional key sectors.

Our office in Seoul is the centre of our programs in South Korea. Trade and investment representatives have developed an extensive network in South Korea, and actively assist Korean and British Columbia businesses to explore shared opportunities in transportation, digital media, information and communication technologies, clean technologies, renewable energy, marine technology, life sciences, and education.
