(AGI) Pescara, June 13 - Ten Italian companies in the agribusiness and fashion sectors have embarked upon a mission to Seoul. The initiative, which will run until June 16, has been promoted by the "Centro Estero Abruzzo" (Abruzzo Foreign Centre), in partnership with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Korea, coordinated by Roberto Martorana. The formula of B2B meetings was previously tried in 2013 in South Korea, where 11 Abruzzo companies conducted business negotiations with Korean operators. "South Korea, the 13th (largest) global economy, the 4th in Asia with its 50 million inhabitants, GDP growth and a free trade agreement with the European Union, ranks among the main markets of interest in the agribusiness and clothing sectors," said President of "Centro Estero Abruzzo" Daniele Becci. "These figures encourage us to continue the long-term support plan for Abruzzo businesses in South Korea within a broader framework of international promotion in Asia that also sees Japan and China as other objectives, making a "stop-off" in the Middle East with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Iran.". .
