Mr Mangat Ram Sharma, IAS, Principal Secretary, MSME, Govt. of Tamilnadu in his address said that event though India has signed Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement with Korea, due to various reasons our exports as well as investment from Korea not increased.  He urged the  Korean business community to invest in Tamil Nadu which is having huge potential on infrastructure and manufacturing.

Mr. Myoung-Jin Shin, Chairman, Korea Importers Association, Seoul, Korea  in his address said that there is huge opportunity for Indian exporters especially MSMEs to sell their products in Korea.  Since Korea lacks natural resources, the import of raw materials and semi-finished goods is essential to the country’s industrial development and economic growth.  Korea import market is rapidly growing with 450 billion US$ during the year 2016 with double digit growth.  Korea is having FTA with 53 countries including India, US, China, EU, Australia etc. and very active in RCEP negotiations.  He urged Indian exporters to utilize low import tariff offered by Korea (1.5%) without imposing any NTBs.
According to the feed back received on the B2B meetings held with Indian exporters and Korean Importers it is  expected to fetch business worth of Rs.100 crores.  The top 10 products imported by Korea includes mineral products, plastic and rubber products, leather, textile and garments, machinery, iron and steel, marine products, electric and electronic products etc. and there is immense scope to increase the product profile based on India’s manufacturing capacity.
