2017 Business Confidence Survey Results

European chambers and business councils in Korea with Roland Berger Seoul released the results of the Business Confidence Survey 2017 at the press conference hosted at Seoul Square on January 30. For the third year, the survey has been conducted to gauge European companies perceptions towards the business environment of Korea. In partnership with Roland Berger Seoul, the ECCK along with 11 other European chambers and business councils in Korea collectively organized the survey.

ECCK hopes the survey serves as a useful tool for business people and policy makers to make future forward decisions for the mutual benefit of the Korean and European businesses.
