On May 23, the ECCK and Korea Trade Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) co-organized the ‘Future of the Automotive Industry Forum 2017’ at the Pusan National University. Joined by around 50 participants, the forum was open to anyone who is interested in learning about the European automotive enterprises and the future of the automotive industry. The forum focused on understanding the foreign direct investment and foreign invested companies in Korea and learning about the latest trends and future strategies of the European automotive businesses.
