Korean business leaders at New Zealand PGA in Queenstown

Prime Minister John Key and President of Samsung Electronics JK Shin.

President JK Shin of Samsung Electronics and Dongwon Group Chairman Jae-Chul Kim recently participated in New Zealand PGA Championship competitions held in Queenstown on 2 and 3 March. Both were invited by Prime Minister John Key. 

President Shin played in the Pro Am competition with Mr Key on the first day and with golf legend Bob Charles on the second day. Chairman Kim, who also serves as New Zealand's Honorary Consul in Busan, boasted his sharp swing at the PGA Challenge held alongside the Pro Am.  Both guests also met New Zealand golf prodigy Lydia Ko.

To leverage off this invaluable opportunity, business meetings were organised by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise to introduce President Shin and Chairman Kim to innovative New Zealand ICT companies and food companies wanting to do business with Korean partners.
