In cooperation with the AHK Korea, the IHK Korea Desks have developed a new webinar series called “Meet the CEO”. The webinar series was opened on September 3 with Mr. Uhl from SAP.
Meet the CEO: Yan Uhl, SAP Korea
For the German economy South Korea is the 3rd most important market in Asia. German products enjoy a high reputation there. Like all markets, the South Korean market has its special features. How do German companies succeed in entering the South Korean market? What hurdles and challenges do they face? And what opportunities do they see for themselves? In our new webinar series “Meet the CEO” these and other questions were discussed with CEOs/ or decision makers of German companies that are already successfully active in South Korea.
