The Greater Irvine Chamber on Oct. 12 hosted executives of four chambers of commerce from Korea.
Representatives from the Changwon, Jinju, Tongyeong, and Miryang chambers of commerce visited the Greater Irvine Chamber to learn about opportunities for U.S. expansion in Irvine and Irvine’s role in the Southern California economy.
“It was an honor to host this exploratory group of executives who will return to Korea to share details about the advantages of doing business in Irvine and the benefits our community offers to the workforce,” said Greater Irvine Chamber President & CEO Bryan Starr.
Other executives on hand to greet the delegation and discuss the role of their respective organizations in the community, were members of the Greater Irvine Chamber’s Board of Directors Executive Committee and community partners representing the University of California, Irvine, Irvine Korean American Chamber of Commerce of Orange County, and The Irvine Company.
As part of the visit to America, the delegation attended the World Korean Business Convention—held outside Korea for the first time in its 21-year history, making its U.S. debut in Orange County at the Anaheim Convention Center in October.
