The SBA, a city-run agency that supports SMEs in the capital, said a total of 300 companies will participate in more than 1,200 online export consultation meetings with 500 foreign buyers from more than 20 countries. The participating companies were matched with buyers mainly in the categories of beauty, lifestyle, food, medical and quarantine and IT and electronics.
As the SMEs and overseas buyers already registered on Trade Week’s online platform and obtained information about each other in advance, the organizers said both sides will have helpful consultation meetings during the four-day event. The SBA will keep the platform running after Trade Week to allow further talks between Seoul SMEs and overseas buyers.
Trade Week invited experts from various fields to offer perspectives on international trade trends and strategies. A global trade conference is scheduled for each day until the event’s closure on Friday.
Jon Levy, a well-known behavioral scientist, on Tuesday delivered his keynote speech on the world community after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trade Week also features live commerce shows and launching events for new products, according to the organizers.
During the live commerce show, companies that export beauty, food and lifestyle items will have the chance to present their products for China and Southeast Asia. The shows will be streamed via LUVE, Naver Shopping Live and Taobao.
The global trade event takes place at the FIC Convention Hall on the Sebitseom island on the Han River in southern Seoul. More information about Trade Week can be found on its official website.
