Sixteen domestic seafood companies will be travelling to Belgium for the European Seafood Expo this week, supported by the Korean Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. The ministry revealed today that it will be helping the mid-sized businesses participate in the event in a bid to boost their export potential. Currently the seafood produced in Korean is largely exported to the Japanese market, but the companies are hoping to secure supply contracts worth US$8m to Europe and Africa during the exhibition.
