Trip participants will meet with potential trade partners selected specifically for them and their markets as well as receive a South Korean market assessment specific to his or her company.

Additional participants from state exporters will have to pay a $1,500 fee. Participants who aren’t exporters will have to pay the full $10,300 non-subsidized cost of the trip.
