50 Years of KOTRA & Korean Trade

Date of Issue : 14 June 2012

The Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012.

KOTRA was being established in June 1962. It served as front line commandos in the export competition in the 1960s, and in the 1970s to 1980s, as vanguard pioneers exploring the Eastern European markets. After the Asian financial crisis in the late 1990s, KOTRA expanded its aim to attract foreign direct investment into Korea as well.

Currently, KOTRA provides infrastructure and support for the globalization and overseas entry of Korean businesses through 119 branch offices in 81 countries. Two commemorative stamps are issued, featuring the “KOTRA 50th anniversary emblem” and the “KOTRA’s headquarters.”
