Seoul mates

New Zealand’s trade commissioner in Seoul Graeme Solloway, who is responsible for promoting bilateral trade and investment, has been in the South Korean capital promoting technological ties between the two countries. “Both Korea and New Zealand are very innovative countries, and we can combine some of our innovations and put them into products,” Solloway said. Solloway stressed that New Zealand has more to offer than its high-quality and safe agriculture products, grass-fed beef, timber and other natural resources. He said the technology industry also plays a big economic role, while standing as a fast-developing sector offering much promise as a future growth engine. And to the trade master, Korea, his home country’s sixth-largest trading market, is “very important.”
