rapid emergence from the "IMF Financial Crisis" of 1997-98 has
made it one of the best investment stories in Asia. Comprehensive public
and private sector reforms have enabled the liberalization of its financial
system and the introduction of the corporate transparency, new technologies
and business practices needed to create a knowledge-based society.
An increasingly efficient and open economy, Korea has attracted foreign
investment totaling nearly $52 billion in recent years. Possessing a newly
empowered consumer base and a radically different corporate environment,
Korea's domestic market is increasingly attractive to foreign companies
and investors. They are coming to appreciate its strategic location. Korea
has made substantial investments to build on this strength, developing
the air, marine and land infrastructure needed to position itself as the
"Dynamic Hub of Asia".
The Korea Infrastructure Projects and Investment Seminar will be
organized by the Korea Investment Service Center and held on November
4, 2002 at the Swissotel in New York City. Admission will be
limited to a select group of investors, real estate developers, site location
specialists, engineering and project finance specialists, corporate executives,
financial and service professionals and other qualified individuals on
a space available basis.
Registration will begin at 11:30 PM and the seminar will conclude
at 5:00 PM, following a luncheon briefing and one-on-one meetings
with member of the delegation.
