South Korea Roadshow Trade Mission

From April 17th-19th The Netherlands-South Korea Defense Industry Roadshow Trade Mission took place in Gyeongsangnamdo.

The roadshow was jointly organised by Gyeongnam TP, the Dutch Embassy in Korea, and the Netherlands Industries for Defence & Security (NIDV) with the support of Gyeongnam Province, to promote defence technology cooperation between Gyeongnam defence companies and Dutch companies.

On the Dutch side, the Aerospace Research Institute (NLR), the Applied Science Institute (TNO) and defence companies Al Armaments, Hull Vane B.V., The IP Company and Vonk participated in the trade mission.

During the event, the participants gave a presentation to introduce their companies and highlight their strengths and what they could offer to Korean partners. The Dutch delegation also visited defence-related companies in the South Gyeongsang Province such as Hyundai Rotem, Hanwha Aerospace, KAI, Human Heavy Industries, Kencoa Aerospace, Su Optics, Kyeongin Tech and i-Spec.

All in all, this trade mission was a great example of a partnership that is not just about business growth but also contributing to global cooperation and security.
