On April 20, ECCK organized a special roundtable meeting with National Assembly Member Hong Jungmin and representatives of ECCK member companies. During the meeting, Dr Hong and ECCK discussed the prospects of economic legislations in the post covid-19 era and ways to strengthen the cooperation between the National Assembly committees and European businesses. ECCK shared candid opinions on the difficulties of the Korean business environment and constructive recommendations to improve the investment environment for the foreign business community in Korea. Dr Hong is a National Assembly’s Trade, Industry, Energy, SMEs and Startups Committee Member and the Floor Spokesperson of the ruling Democratic Party. “The COVID-19 crisis has brought us many challenges, adding uncertainty to our daily lives and to the global economy. It is an urgent task to escape the emergency economic state hit hard by the virus outbreak, but at the same time, we must prepare for bigger hurdles to overcome in the post-COVID era. In a time of tough challenges and risks, I strongly believe that both the lawmakers and business must focus on fulfilling its own responsibilities, offering long-term solutions to real problems, building trust and confidence.”, said ECCK Chairperson Dirk Lukat.
