The COVID-19 pandemic has plunged the global economy into a recession. But the OECD and other institutions have forecast that Korea will be less affected by the crisis, citing the country’s successful virus control, effective stimulus measures and flexible economic environment. Despite a sharp drop in global flows of foreign direct investment due to the ongoing pandemic, FDI to South Korea in the third quarter has reached an all-time high. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to talk more about trade and FDI strategy in the post-COVID era, including the strengths of Korea as an investment destination and challenges that need to be addressed to attract more foreign investment.
