Export, Innovate, Invest - The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service

Trade Commissioner Service - Korea, Republic

Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA)

As a part of Canada's international business development network, the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service in Korea delivers quality services to its clients and advances Canadian commercial, economic and related policy interests. Whether you are looking to export, invest, attract investment, or develop innovation and R&D partnerships in Korea, our trade commissioners are available when and where you need them. We are ready to help your company achieve business success.

Korea is a major economic player and a key market for Canada. The soon to be implemented Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement will unlock the unrealized potential in our commercial relationship and lay a solid foundation for the deepening of our already strong bilateral relationship. This Agreement is Canada’s first FTA in the Asia-Pacific region and represents a landmark achievement for both countries. It will generate new trade and investment opportunities and foster innovative partnerships. As a result, Canadian companies will be able to take better advantage of Korea as a strategic base for expanding their presence in all of Asia and across its supply chains.
