With the 2015 GTI International Trade and Investment Expo coming in less than 80 days, the critical success factors of the expo, which are corporate recruitment and buyer invitation, are shaping up nicely. 

A total of 385 domestic companies, including companies that have developed Winter Olympics products, and promising companies in the clean food, biotechnology, and medical devices sectors in Gangwon Province, will participate in the expo. The figure is higher than the previous goal of 300.

In particular, foreign companies, including member countries of the Governor's Conference of Local Governments in Northeast Asia, China Enterprise Confederation, The Industrial and Commercial Federation of China, China-Japan-Korea Enterprise Promotion Committee, Bejing-Chosun Business Committee, and the World Korean Business Convention, are inquiring about the participation of the expo.

As the opportunity to evaluate the product marketability of Gangwon Province-based companies and to open new markets, the GTI Expo will provide at least three one-on-one meetings with preferred buyers to mid-sized export firms so that they can develop new export markets by creating new businesses.

The expo also plans to position itself as a tourist attraction for families and group visitors by offering discount and sampling events.

During the same period, the province will host art exhibitions, such as “Five Northeast Asian Countries’ Art Exhibition” and “Pyeongchang Biennale.”

In particular, it will run a night food market, which sells local specialty products of Gangwon Province and fishery products, and hold performances every night to offer flavor to early autumn nights.

Gangwon Province expects that the 2015 GTI International Trade and Investment Expo will become a representative expo in Northeast Asia, as well as the improvement of its awareness at home and abroad.
