On Tuesday, November 29, 2016 , the Promotion entities of the Pacific Alliance ProChile, ProColombia, ProMexico and PromPeru, are organizing the seminar Doing  Business in the Pacific Alliance (AP), at the Busan Metropolitan City ,Grand Conference Hall, from 09:00am to 14:00 hrs.

 

This event will be a good opportunity to explain the characteristics and future perspectives of the Pacific Alliance, as well as to show to Busan`s officials and entrepreneurs our market of around 217 million people, with an average GDP per capita of US$ 16.759 in PPP terms.

 

The Pacific Alliance is a suitable platform to encourage joint ventures.  It provides opportunities for foreign investment and it is open to trade, entrepreneurship and innovation in various areas.  We hope that this seminar will contribute to develop ties and mutually beneficial endeavors between its member States and Korean industries and companies.

 

The Pacific Alliance is an initiative of regional integration comprised by Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, officially established on April 28th, 2011.

 

Chile is a highly ranked emerging economy in Latin America and one of the best acknowledged worldwide. Its stability, transparency, competitiveness and excellent business projections make it the best destination for foreign investments and one of the most outstanding in the world. Chile has 25 FTAs. Its unique geography provides natural barriers that help maintain healthy conditions and protect its agriculture against pests and diseases. Today Chile is one of the world's biggest exporter of fresh fruits, seafood and pork meat. In 2004 Korea signed the first FTA with Chile. This facilitated the introduction of Korean exports and investment in Chile within the mining, services and construction sector. On the other hand, it also promoted Chilean exports of high quality products, such as fresh fruit, salmon, pork meat and wines.

 

Colombia is the third largest economy in Latin America according to the World Bank behind only to Brazil and Mexico and with a population close to 50 million people it is also the third biggest population in the region. This makes of Colombia the largest economy and market in Latin America to have an FTA with the Republic of Korea. The Korea-Colombia FTA is expected to bring opportunities to both countries and increase trade. At the moment Colombia is one of the top two suppliers of both coffee and fresh flowers to the Republic of Korea and with the FTA opportunities are rising for products such as cacao, fresh fruits, processed fruits, natural oils, natural ingredients for cosmetic industry among others

 

 The bilateral relation between Mexico and Korea has become a strategic one for both countries over the past ten years, not only both share the same interests but also share a common global vision. Mexico is today the most important destination of Korea’s investment in Latin America and Korea is now the sixth most important trade partner of Mexico. There are nearly 1700 Korean companies established all over Mexico, with an special emphasis on the automotive industry. At the same time Korea is becoming a significant Market opportunity for Mexican high quality agricultural products and processed foods.

 

 

 Perú, with a population of 31 million people, is the second Latin American country in sign a FTA with the Republic of Korea. Five years has lasted since Korea-Peru FTA entered into force and thanks to this, Peru is now a day a high reliable supplier to Korea for seafood, fresh fruits and superfoods. Korea, in the other hand, has achieved high development in several fields and those represent a good opportunity for Korean companies to participate in multisectorial projects launched by Peruvian government through Public Private Partnerships with the aim to reduce the lack of infrastructure and public services.
