On February 11, the 2020 kick-off meeting of ECCK’s Marine & Shipbuilding Committee was held at WeWork Seomyeon branch in Busan. The meeting was joined by Minister Counsellor of Trade and Economy Section at the Delegation of the EU in Korea Mr. Benoit Lory. During the meeting, the participants discussed developments in and pertinent challenges related to the marine and shipbuilding industry.
