Overseas buyers look around at the KEPCO Joint Exhibition Booth at Hannover International Trade Fair 2018 held in Hanover, Germany from April 23 to 27.

The Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) participated in the 2018 Hanover International Industry Fair held in Hanover, Germany, for 5 days from April 23 (local time) last month with outstanding small and medium-sized Korean companies in the electric power industry.

"We discussed export deals amounting to a total of US$ 33 million in meetings with foreign buyers at the fair," KEPCO said on May 1. KEPCO introduced products of ten cooperative small and medium-sized Korean enterprises to overseas buyers by opening an exhibition booth jointly with the Korea Electrical Manufacturers Association.

"KEPCO is actively supporting the advancement of technologically savvy small and medium-sized companies with low brand awareness into overseas markets," said Hwang Gwang-soo, acting head of the Office of Support for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and Start-ups at KEPCO.

KEPCO will hold export promotion events in Asia, Latin America, Cambodia, the Philippines, Turkey, Jordan and Argentina starting next month. At this year's Hannover Industry Fair, a total of 5,160 companies from 77 countries took part. Among them, 97 were Korean companies.
